School districts tally excessive absences by the number of students who miss 10 percent or more days at school. In a 180-day school year at the end of the year that would be 18 or more missed days at school. The 2017-18 school year was a little shorter on days due to Hurricane Irma. Data for 2017-18 showed that district wide 14.3 percent (1,758 out of a total enrollment of 12,309) missed 10 percent or more days at school. Generally the elementary schools are below the district wide percentage and the secondary schools are above it with a higher number of students missing an excessive amount of school days. Sebring High stands out as the only secondary school that was below the district wide percentage with 12.1 percent of its students missing 10 percent of the school days. For comparison, Avon Park High with 30 percent and Avon Park Middle with 27.9 percent had the highest percentages followed by Lake Placid High Â„ 23 percent, Sebring Middle Â„ 21.4 percent, Hill-Gustat Middle Â„ 19 percent and Lake Placid Middle Â„ 15 percent. District wide the good attendance award goes to Avon Elementary with only 3.8 percent absent 10 percent of the time or more. Educators state at the elementary level student attendance is primarily the parentÂs responsibility, but at the secondary level the responsibility shifts to the student who may skip school or a class without knowledge of the parents. Sebring High Principal Kim Ervin said her school worked very hard last year to reduce the number of District wide in the 2017-18 school year, 14.3 percent of the students missed 10 percent or more days at school. MARC VALERO/STAFFAll Highlands District Schools have a Student Attendance Review Committee that periodically reviews attendance and contacts parents when a student misses many days of school.IN CLASS AND ON TASKKeeping students Heflin gets life for murder, robberyDemundo killed in 2016By PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING Â„ A woman charged with second-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon has been found guilty and sentenced to two life sentences. Lace Melitta HeÂ”in, 39, will serve those sentences at the same time while also serving a Â“ve-year sentence for cocaine possession. Circuit Court Judge Peter Estrada also sentenced her to time served in the Highlands County Jail for charges of petit theft and possession of drug paraphernalia. The conviction came nearly two years after she told Highlands County SheriffÂs deputies she repeatedly stabbed 95-year-old Dominic Demundo and slit his throat to get money to settle a debt with a drug dealer, based on initial arrest afÂ“davits. HeÂ”in has been in and out of mental hospitals since then, with differing reports of her competency for trial. However, Highlands County Clerk of the Courts records show she had a Â“nal Â“nding on Oct. 2, 2017, that she was competent to proceed. After several pretrial conferences, court records show she entered a plea of nolo contendere Â„ no contest Â„ on April 30, 2018. After more continuances for sentencing hearings, she was sentenced Thursday. Deputies Â“rst discovered DemundoÂs body on Sept. 19, 2016, when they went to do a welfare check on him. Two days later, Sept. 21, deputies arrested HeÂ”in and booked her into the county jail. Arrest reports said HeÂ”in had done housecleaning work for him. Deputies considered her a suspect after they discovered she was using DemundoÂs credit cards and checks after he was killed. A non-uniformed patrol deputy located HeÂ”inÂs vehicle in the parking lot of Wauchula State Bank. While searching HeÂ”in down for weapons, the deputy found a bulge that turned out to be a wallet belonging to a bank employee. It had been lifted off the employeeÂs desk, reports said. Reports also said the deputy found a glass pipe with cocaine residue in HeÂ”inÂs purse. Reports said she Âconfessed to coming to DemundoÂs home to collect a check to pay back a drug dealerÂŽ and also Âconfessed to killing him by stabbing and cutting him with a kitchen knife.ÂŽ Allegedly, after stabbing Demundo several times, she cut his throat to Âend it.ÂŽ Again, according to reports, she told deputies she threw the knife away in a trash can at a nearby business, took HEFLINHighlands second in citrus production for 2017-18 Local growers looking for 2018-19 to recover lossesBy PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING Â„ Polk may have grabbed the top spot in Florida citrus production, but Highlands County came in right behind it. ThatÂs the word from the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture numbers on the 2017-18 growing season, one that was decimated by Hurricane Irma. ÂIt looks like Highlands County, for the 2017-18 season, (picked) just shy of 8 million boxes of fruit, behind Polk County that picked 9 million,ÂŽ said Ray Royce, executive director of the Highlands County Citrus Growers Association. All the citrus harvest for last year was 49.58 million boxes, he said. Of that, Highlands growers picked 7.93 million and Polk picked 9.26 million. ÂWe were one of the four counties to see an increase in the amount of citrus acreage,ÂŽ Royce said: 4,585 over the previous year. ÂWe now have 59,000 acres of citrus, which makes us number four in the state for citrus acres.ÂŽ Polk County has approximately 69,000 acres. DeSoto County has 68,000 Hendry County has 64,000 Highlands County has 59,000. With the state tally at 447,000 acres, Highlands County makes up 13 percent of the stateÂs citrus acreage, Royce said. The county also has 8.5 million citrus trees. ÂBasically, thatÂs 145 trees per acre,ÂŽ Royce said. Why has Highlands County moved up in production? ÂI think thereÂs a wide range of factors,ÂŽ Royce said. ÂOne may be that DeSoto and Hendry perhaps had a little more fruit loss from the hurricane than we did even.ÂŽ It helps, he said, that Highlands County growers have planted a lot of new trees. ÂBottom line is I think citrus acreage will continue to increase,ÂŽ Royce said. ÂI expect Highlands County will always be one of the top in citrus acreage and crop production. ÂRight now, most growers feel like they did last year on Sept. 1, (when) we thought we had a good crop on the trees and things changed 10 days later,ÂŽ he added.

The theme this year is ÂNightmares.ÂŽ It will feature all of the most popular scenes and attractions that have made this haunt a local favorite, organizers said. In addition, several new scenes will be added this year Â„ including a toxic waste site, a scare crow gantlet, and ÂAnnabelleÂs Playground.ÂŽ This yearÂs edition of Terror Trail will also feature the use of hologram projectors and other high-tech special effects. Terror Trail is the leading fundraising event for the Humane Society of Highlands County, and it is featured the last weekend in September and every weekend in October. Volunteers are needed for scare characters, makeup artists, parking and security. Several of the new scenes have adult roles. Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to attend one of the organizational meetings that will be held at Lakeshore Mall.

Avon Park Ordinance No. 05-18, which amends the city code, states that no person shall possess or consume any alcoholic beverage within any city park or recreation center or any other city property. The new language in the ordinance states: ÂExemptions for possession or consumption of alcohol during special events may be obtained through the city managerÂs ofÂ“ ce.ÂŽ The City Council approved the Â“ rst reading of the ordinance with little discussion. Mayor Garrett Anderson cast the only ÂnoÂŽ vote. The Â“ nal adoption hearing for the ordinance is set for Monday, Sept. 10. Also, Councilman Jim Barnard suggested setting a date for Halloween trick-or-treat, recommending Oct. 27, which is a Saturday. Last year the City was planning to have trick-or-treat on the actual Halloween holiday with Oct. 31 falling on a Tuesday, but citizen reaction prompted the City Council to move it up to Oct. 28, which was a Saturday. City Council agreed to set the trick-or-treat date for Oct. 27. Also, the City Council approved to reinstate a terminated lease with Jahna Concrete on a month-to-month basis at the same $300 annual rate as the expired lease agreement. The property is near Walnut Street. City Manager June Fisher said Jahna Concrete is not ready to move to its new location and may need another eight months at its current location. The previous lease agreement, which was to terminate no later than Aug. 1, 2018, shows the property was for Jahna to use for administrative ofÂ“ ces and as a storage yard for rebar and steel cages and sale of concrete-related products.State promotes Drowsy Driving Prevention WeekSpecial to Highlands News-SunTALLAHASSEE Â„ The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) is leading the Drowsy Driving Prevention Week campaign starting this Labor Day weekend. DHSMV is partnering with the Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Sheriffs Association, Florida Police Chiefs Association, Florida Trucking Association and AAA Â„ The Auto Club Group to recognize Sept. 1-10 as Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. DHSMV reminds motorists to get adequate rest before getting behind the wheel, take breaks to remain alert and never drive drowsy. ÂDriving drowsy affects your reaction time and ability to focus, and can have dangerous, and sometimes deadly, consequences,ÂŽ said DHSMV Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes. ÂGet adequate rest before you get behind the wheel and employ safe driving techniques if you start to feel fatigue. Never drive drowsy.ÂŽ In 2008, 8-year old Ronshay Dugans lost her life after a cement truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and hit the school bus she was riding. FloridaÂs Ronshay Dugans Act was established in 2010 to honor her memory by recognizing the Â“ rst week in September as Drowsy Driving Prevention Week, reminding Florida every year of the dangers of drowsy driving. ÂSafe driving is everyoneÂs responsibility,ÂŽ said FHP Director Col. Gene S. Spaulding. ÂA few simple precautions will ensure your safety and avoid the dangers of drowsy driving. Get plenty of rest before sitting behind the wheel and make the decision to pull into a rest area when you feel fatigued to Âarrive alive.ÂÂŽ Drowsy driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving. Fatigue slows thought processes and reaction time, affects judgement and vision, impairs the senses and abilities and can cause micro-sleeping (Ânodding offÂŽ) or falling completely asleep, making it very unsafe to drive. ÂIt is important all motorists understand drowsy driving is impaired driving,ÂŽ said FDOT Secretary Mike Dew. ÂWe want everyone traveling on our roadways to practice good habits behind the wheel and that includes not operating a vehicle while drowsy.ÂŽ ÂDriving when you are drowsy endangers not only yourself but those around you,ÂŽ said Florida State University Police Chief David Perry, president of the Florida Chiefs Association. ÂThe impact of driving while drowsy has proven to have tragic results. If you are feeling drowsy donÂt get behind the wheel or simply pull over.ÂŽ ÂIf you are driving drowsy, you are driving impaired because you are not at your best behind the wheel,ÂŽ said Matt Nasworthy, Public Affairs Director for AAA Â„ The Auto Club Group. ÂDonÂt put your life and the lives of others at risk by not getting the proper sleep. Just missing two hours of sleep can quadruple a driverÂs crash risk.ÂŽ Visit the DHSMVÂs website, Â” hsmv.gov/ drowsydriving, for more information and resources to spread the word about drowsy driving prevention. 1. Asparagus spears will grow into big bushy Âferns.ÂŽ New crops of asparagus are only grown every 10 to 15 years because they are a perennial vegetable, returning every season on their own. 2. A high respiration rate means asparagus ÂdieÂŽ quicker than other harvested vegetables. The respiration rate of a vegetable is the rate at which a plant takes in oxygen, breaks down starches and releases carbon dioxide. After a vegetable is cut, it doesnÂt initially die, but continues this metabolic process. Because asparagus has a high respiration rate, it has a tendency to ÂdieÂŽ and go bad before other vegetables. 3. Asparagus is rich in saponins, a type of phytonutrient credited with anti-inÂ” ammatory and anti-cancer properties. 4. The growth rate of asparagus could reach as much as 1 inch per hour. When the weather is right, asparagus grows very fast. 5. You probably already know that asparagus can make your urine stink. It turns out, this occurrence is due to something called asparagusic acid, which the body converts into sulfur-containing compounds Â… that stink.

Teachers, guidance counselors, deans, and administrators contacted parents when they noticed students were missing several days or when they were chronically absent. Follow through happened at the monthly Student Attendance Review Committee (SARC) meetings, Ervin said. Reports are run each month and letters are sent home requesting parents to come in and meet with administrators and other Student Services staff members to determine why their child has been absent and what can be done to improve their attendance. The district changed the time that parents received the automated phone call informing them that their child was absent from school, she noted. In previous years the call went out in the evening, Ervin said. Last year the call went out after Â“rst period. ÂWe had many parents who received the call and were able to get their child to school before it counted as a whole-day absence,ÂŽ she said. Ervin also gave credit to the teachers, coaches and club sponsors for keeping their students engaged in academics and extra-curricular activities. ÂWhen students enjoy their classes and school activities, attendance is better,ÂŽ she said. Lake Placid Middle School Principal Jennifer Sanchez said her school has a very proactive Student Attendance Review Committee, headed by Assistant Principal Willie Hills with guidance counselor Crystal Baugh, that tracks attendance very carefully. ÂThey track students on a weekly basis and when they start to see trends in absenteeism we are very quick to contact parents by telephone,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe have meetings with parents; it is something we are very consistent with throughout the year.STUDENTSFROM PAGE 1ASept. 10, 2017, with sustained winds of 111 mph.

Sometime between there and Polk County, the storm dropped to a Category 1 Â„ 74-95 mph winds Â„ but did plenty of damage to Highlands groves. Recently, Highlands County has seen a lot of wind and rain, but no tropical storm force winds. ÂWeÂre thankful the weather so far this year has been pretty cooperative,ÂŽ Royce said. ÂSo far, weÂve had a pretty good growing season.ÂŽ Growers will start to pick in three or four weeks, but most of the harvest wonÂt be started until late-November, Thanksgiving time, he said, followed by a second picking starting in early March and lasting through the end of May or the Â“rst week of June.

The name stands for ÂVictory over JapanÂŽ Day. There is some confusion on what VÂ…J Day is celebrated, with three dates in the running for title. On Aug. 14, 1945, Japan surrendered to the Allies and President Harry S. Truman announced JapanÂs surrender to in a press conference. On Aug. 15, news of the surrender was announced worldwide. Finally, on Sept. 2, 1945 a formal ceremony was held with the Japanese ambassador and other military represented, as well as Gen. Douglas McArthur, on the USS Missouri, where it was docked in Tokyo Bay, according to History.com. Holiday insights stated the USS Missouri was chosen because it represented the state where Truman was born. V-J Day is not a federally paid holiday. Many people celebrate on either or all three days, but Truman declared Sept. 2 VÂ…J Day after the formal ceremony. To this day, only Rhode Island has the day of celebration as a holiday that is celebrated on the second Monday in August. The victory was a long time coming and the casualities were high for each country involved. JapanÂs bombing of Pearl Harbor in Dec. 7 1941 was the catalyst for the United States to enter the fray on Dec. 8. Allies issued the Postdam Declaration to Japan on July 26, 1945 that demanded the Japanese surrender with conditions. Number 12 of the declaration reveals some of the conditions: ÂThe occupying forces of the Allies shall be withdrawn from Japan as soon as these objectives have been accomplished and there has been established in accordance with the freely expressed will of the Japanese people a peacefully inclined and responsible government.ÂŽ The Allies also placed language in the document that presented some severe consequences if the conditions were not met; paragraph three states: ÂThe result of the futile and senseless German resistance to the might of the aroused free peoples of the world stands forth in awful clarity as an example to the people of Japan. The might that now converges on Japan is immeasurably greater than that which, when applied to the resisting Nazis, necessarily laid waste to the lands, the industry and the method of life of the whole German people. The full application of our military power, backed by our resolve, will mean the inevitable and complete destruction of the Japanese armed forces and just as inevitably the utter devastation of the Japanese homeland.ÂŽ Emperor Hirohito learned the hard way. He refused to surrender and the Allies retaliated swiftly and deadly. The U.S. dropped a new type of bomb, the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on Aug. 6 which is estimated to have killed and wounding over 150,000. Three days later, with no signs of surrender, the U.S. hit hard again, this time on Nagasaki, killing and wounding some 75,000 and decimating towns and the landscape, according to Children of the Atomic Bombs by a University of California Los Angeles professor. After the bombings, Hirohito said that his country was facing certain annihilation. JapanÂs surrender marked the end of World War II and celebrations were reported around the world. WIKIPEDIACitizens and workers of Oak Ridge, Tennessee celebrate V-J Day on August 14, 1945 FAST FACTS V-J Day is not a federally paid holiday. Many people celebrate on either or all three days, but Truman declared Sept. 2 VÂ…J Day after the formal ceremony. To this day, only Rhode Island has the day of celebration as a holiday that is celebrated on the second Monday in August.

Reference Joe Henderson Viewpoints 08/30: ÂDeSantis, Gillum wins are nothing less than astonishing.ÂŽ WhatÂs astounding is how many words he wrote for each candidate, might as well have left two of them out of the article. 56 words for candidate Ron DeSantis, 21 for candidate Gwen Graham, 528 for Andrew Gillum. Would say this writer is trying to promote Socialism of the type Gillum wants to bring to Florida. Ron DeSantisÂ win was every bit as big as GillumÂs, having defeated the favorite of the Florida GOP Adam Putnam who everyone thought was a shoe-in. Not only did he win, he won by major numbers, 322,448 vote difference. Not a single comment on how or why regarding DeSantis. The whole article was written to pump up Gillum. I hope Floridians donÂt want to throw away the past eight years of tremendous gains to go the Socialist route of higher taxes, higher medical cost (like Obamacare brought us), reduction in law enforcement (elimination of ICE), selecting three new Supreme Court justices who believe in his concepts (Socialism), believes in climate change (which is a natural occurrence man has little to no control over). Everything I read in GillumÂs campaign literature says money, money, money; where does that come from, raised taxes! Plus, people need to consider whoÂs backing this candidate; the worldÂs worst Socialist George Soros, the man who turned his back on his people in WWII, then turned them into the Nazis to be sent to concentration camps and killed. This alone should have eliminated this candidate. LetÂs look for more articles from balanced writers, enough of this leftist slant. I do credit the the Highlands News-Sun on the ÂOur View Â article. ItÂs not over yet; very well written.John Nelson SebringDriving in the rainYesterday while driving south on U.S. 27, the short diatance between AldiÂs and U.S. 66/98, I observed the following: It was raining and it was almost dark (5:45 p.m).

Bill Sides Lake PlacidYOUR VIEWThe people have spokenAt a special meeting Wednesday night, Lake Placid town residents made it clear to Town Council that they do not want to see Town Hall moved to a location on U.S. 27 on the north end of town limits. They showed up in force, Â“lling council chambers to a status of standing-room only, and when resident Bill Brantley asked for a show of hands from those who did not want Town Hall to be relocated to the former church of Christ building, nearly everyone in the audience raised their hand. The council met to discuss Â“ve options for a new Town Hall: the former SunTrust building at 611 E. Interlake Blvd., a 4,938-square-foot building with an optional 1,170 square feet with drive-in enclosed sitting on 1.72 acres, for $750,000 and an estimated $300,000 in renovation costs; the former church of Christ at 1069 U.S. 27 North, a 17,502-square-foot building with a shed in back sitting on 14.27 acres, for $995,000 and an estimated $200,000 in renovation costs; or renovations/expansions to the current Town Hall at 311 E. Interlake Blvd., an estimated cost of $400,000 in renovation/ expansion costs only as the 3,953-square-foot building is already owned by the town. The council also discussed two lots behind the Elks Lodge or town property of 2.96 acres with an additional 1.21 frontage acres on Dal Hall Boulevard where a new Town Hall could be constructed at a cost of $1.6 million. One of those Â“ve locations, council discussed, would be big enough for a community center and a hurricane shelter, as well as Town Hall functions and the Police Department. That location was the former church building. The Highlands NewsSun has been saying itÂs a bad idea ever since the former church building was Â“rst proposed as a new Town Hall in 2012. We still feel that way because of the potential of worsening trafÂ“c conditions. We stand with the town residents who were present Wednesday night. The current Town Hall was built in 1977. The building and parking currently exist on about 18,363 square feet, but the Âestimated effective area (the gross inside area that can be utilized),ÂŽ according to Town Administrator Phil Williams, is 3,953 feet. There are eight employees who normally work in about 1,441 square feet of space. The town administrator and town clerk share an ofÂ“ce that is about 145 square feet with a double-sided desk. Council chambers is commonly used for other events, as well as provides a space where conÂ“dential conversations take place with personnel regarding town matters. The town owns about 1.5 acres where the current Town Hall sits. There is no doubt in anyoneÂs mind that the town needs a bigger facility for its business. Not only are town employees crammed into a few small ofÂ“ces in the current 3,953 square feet of utilized area, but many of the town records are stored in the upstairs area of the town barn. In total, Williams said, the staff has been utilizing 8,537 square feet of space at various locations to operate the townÂs duties. Last December, the town annexed an L-shaped strip of land off of U.S. 27 that included the Church of Christ building. Residents have voiced concern that moving Town Hall out of the downtown district would hurt business. Others have voiced concern for safety matters, noting it requires a U-turn to enter the property if coming south on the highway and a U-turn after leaving the property for those who are going home in town or just continuing to travel south on the highway. We feel there is always a greater trafÂ“c risk anytime you have U-turns being made on a two-lane road, especially when that trafÂ“c behavior is on U.S. 27 in Highlands County. Residents asked Wednesday night for more information on the options presented, specifically including operating and maintenance costs for each option, space needs for each department now and projected in 10 years, and a clear explanation on how the town plans to pay for each of the options. They deserve more information than they have been given thus far. The issue will come back up before council at its Sept. 10 meeting, at which time a vote may be forthcoming to choose one site over another. Council members, especially those hoping to take a seat for another term, might be wise to listen to what their constituents have already said. Unless the town can prove better, the people have spoken up and said leave Town Hall in the downtown area. WASHINGTON Â„ One of the unpleasant surprises of your 50Âs (among many) is seeing the heroes and mentors of your 20Âs pass away. I worked for the late Chuck Colson, of Watergate fame, who became, through his work with prisoners, one of the most important social reformers of the 20th century. I worked for the late Jack Kemp, who inspired generations of conservatives with his passion for inclusion. I worked against the late John McCain in the 2000 Republican primaries, but came to admire his truculent commitment to principle. Perhaps it is natural to attribute heroism to past generations and to Â“nd a sad smallness in your own. But we are seeing the largest test of political character in my lifetime. And where are the Republican leaders large enough to show the way? President TrumpÂs recent remarks to evangelicals at the White House capture where Republican politics is heading. ÂThis Nov. 6 election,ÂŽ Trump said, Âis very much a referendum on not only me, itÂs a referendum on your religion.ÂŽ A direct, unadorned appeal to tribal hostilities. Fighting for Trump, Trump argued, is the only way to defend the Christian faith. None of these men and women of God, apparently, gagged on their hors dÂoeuvres. If religious get-outthe-vote efforts are insufÂ“cient, according to the president, Âthat will be the beginning of ending everything youÂve gotten.ÂŽ The gates of hell will not prevail against the church, but evidently Nancy Pelosi would. ÂItÂs not a question of like or dislike, itÂs a question that they [Democrats] will overturn everything that weÂve done and they will do it quickly and violently. And violently. There is violence.ÂŽ Here Trump is preparing his audience for the possibility of bloodshed by predicting it from the other side. Christians, evidently, need to start taking ÂOnward, Christian SoldiersÂŽ more literally. This is now what passes for GOP discourse Â„ the cultivation of anger, fear, grievances, prejudices and hatreds. I have sympathy for principled Republicans at a time when principle is swiftly and effectively punished. In FloridaÂs recent primaries, signiÂ“cantly more Republican voters said they were loyal to Trump than to the GOP. In many places, the only way for an average Republican senator or House member to maintain any political inÂ”uence is to burn incense to the emperor. But Republican leaders need to prepare themselves. This compromise is likely to be temporary. Trump is not only making a challenge to the Republican establishment; he is increasingly impatient with structures of democratic accountability. As Edward Luce argues in ÂThe Retreat of Western Liberalism,ÂŽ Âthe true populist loses patience with the rules of the democratic game.ÂŽ He comes to view himself as the embodied voice of the people, and opponents as (in TrumpÂs words) Âun-AmericanÂŽ and Âtreasonous.ÂŽ As Robert Mueller continues his inexorable investigation of TrumpÂs sleazy business and political world Â„ and if Democrats gain the House and begin aggressive oversight Â„ a cornered president may test the limits of executive power in the attempt to avoid justice. If the GOP narrowly retains control of the House, Trump and others will take it as the vindication of his whole approach to politics. The president will doubtlessly go further in targeting his enemies for investigation and other harm. He will doubtlessly attack the independence of the FBI and attempt to make it an instrument of his will. He will doubtlessly continue his vendetta against responsible journalism and increase his pressure on media companies that donÂt please him. On a broad front, TrumpÂs lunacy would become operational. The separation of powers does not work automatically, like a washing machine. Republicans must pick their own point of principled resistance to a corrosive populism, if they have one at all. In the preface to his play ÂA Man for All Seasons,ÂŽ author Robert Bolt tries to explain the character of Thomas More, who ends up killed for his opposition to the king. ÂHe knew where he began and left off,ÂŽ Bolt says, Âwhat area of himself he could yield to the encroachments of his enemies, and what to the encroachments of those he loved ... But at length he was asked to retreat from that Â“nal area where he located himself. And there this supple, humorous, unassuming and sophisticated person set like metal, was overtaken by an absolutely primitive rigor and could no more be budged than a cliff.ÂŽ Republican leaders may dread it, but they will eventually be forced to identify that Â“nal area where they keep themselves Â„ or Â“nd there is no one there.

www.highlandsnewssun.com September 2, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A7Barnard seeks study before utility purchaseBy MARC VALEROStaff WriterAVON PARK Â„ While the city is poised to purchase a wastewater utility system, Councilman Jim Barnard cautions that it should be inspected by an engineer. City Manager June Fisher said the owner has come down on his price for Sebring Ridge Utilities. He is now asking $350,000 for the system, which does not include the sewer plant. City staff has evaluated the system and knows where it would need improvements, she said. ÂWe are continuing to work with Mr. [Chris] Miller to purchase that system. ÂWe think it would be very helpful, especially since we are going to be providing utility services to WaWa,ÂŽ she added. A WaWa convenience store is planned for the northeast corner of U.S. 27 and Valerie Boulevard. Mayor Garrett Anderson asked if the utility was already connected to the area. ÂThey are not far; yes,ÂŽ Fisher replied. Anderson asked, ÂSo it would be beneÂ“cial to the city at that price?ÂŽ Fisher responded, ÂWe believe so.ÂŽ Barnard noted that at a previous meeting he suggested that the city should have an engineer inspect the system. The previous city manager, who has an engineering degree, looked at it previously and didnÂt think much of it, Barnard said. Barnard believes the previous city manager, in considering its condition, valued the utility system at $250,000. ÂI also understand it was offered to the City of Sebring and they turned down the offer to buy it,ÂŽ Barnard said. He is concerned about buying something that someone valued at $250,000. Fisher said having an engineer inspect it could be something the city can do. Councilman Terry Heston said the system would add another 900 customers for the city. No one else would buy it because the city would be providing the water utility. At the July 23 meeting, Utility Director Josh Turner said at some point the city should take over the sewer service because it goes hand-in-hand with the water, he said. The lowest Miller will go is $350,000. The cityÂs total investment to bring it up to city standards would be $500,000, Turner said. Barnard said Wednesday, ÂI hate to think we didnÂt take the extra step to make sure we know exactly what we are buying.ÂŽ The following people were arrested on felony charges and booked into the Highlands County jail on Aug. 24: Fidel Bautista, 24, Avon Park, on charges of drug selling, using two-way communication device to facilitate a felony, drug equipment possession and heroin distribution.

The Association of Florida Conservation Districts presented the prestigious award to the District as a part of the annual meeting held in Ocala last week. ÂThe award recognizes outstanding commitment and success of the local District for its efforts in conservation of natural resources, not only in Highlands County, but throughout the entire state,ÂŽ a news release states. Established nationwide in the late 1930s, as a direct result of the Dust Bowl disaster, there are 58 districts in Florida who partner with multiple agencies and landowners to provide funding and technical assistance in a variety of conservation efforts. Clegg Hooks, deputy director with the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services Â… OfÂ“ce of Ag Water Policy (FDACSOAWP), presented the award, describing the Highlands District as one of the most active and effective Districts FDACSOAWP partners with. Their work with FDACS-OAWP includes managerial support for implementation of Best Management Practices (BMP) on agricultural operations statewide with a concentration in Highlands County. The Highlands District Executive Director Susie Bishop said she was honored to accept the award on behalf of the board. ÂThis is an accomplishment our entire team is proud to receive. Being recognized for all the work we do to serve the agricultural industry and protect natural resources in our county is very exciting and much appreciated,ÂŽ she said. Soil & Water Conservations Districts are governed by supervisors elected in the general election, who serve but do not receive any compensation for their public service. The current Highlands Board of Supervisors are: Scott Kirouac-board chairman, Dr. John Causey-vice chairman, Doug Deen-secretary/ treasurer, Pamela Fentress and Steve Smith. Hooks commended the board for its dedication and continued support of natural resource conservation efforts. Hooks also shared with the banquet audience the expansiveness of the work of the Highlands District, including an Agricultural Mobile Irrigation Lab, management of a statewide Agricultural Weather Station program, ongoing support and partnership with the Highlands County Board of County Commission, direct involvement with the citrus renovation program, wide spread BMP projects, creation and management of Growing in the Heartland Community Garden, youth education programs and even the development and use of a strategic work plan. Kirouac explained, ÂMany citizens donÂt realize the importance of having an active SWCD, but they are the backbone of the many programs working to conserve our natural resources while still being able to grow and produce the food and Â“ber we all need to thrive. In the unique state of Florida water is of greatest concern, so many of the programs the HSWCD manages focuses on the quantity of water used and quality of water in agricultural operations.ÂŽ Bishop explained, ÂIn addition to the conservation of water and natural resources, the large amount of dollars the District manages for cost-share projects has a huge economic impact in our county and state. For example, in previous years we managed $6 million in cost share funding and using an economic impact ratio of 4 results in $24 million downstream in our county and surrounding counties. So what we do beneÂ“ts industries far beyond agriculture.ÂŽ When asked about this recent award, Fentress stated, ÂI am proud to serve as a supervisor on the HSWCD Board representing agriculture producers in our area, as well as the natural resources we all value. Out District strives for accountability and transparency in every program we manage. This award is a testament to the dedication of our Board and staff, both comprised of the strong leaders needed to accomplish this level of proÂ“ciency and professionalism. The honest, hardworking and dedicated District staff combined with these same attributes in the numerous agencies we partner with is the reason this award was received. A job well done by a great team!ÂŽ COURTESY PHOTOClegg Hooks, deputy director with the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services Â… Oce of Ag Water Policy (FDACS-OAWP), presented Susie Bishop, with the Highlands Soil & Water Conservation District, the award for Top Soil & Water Conservation District in the state.

www.highlandsnewssun.com September 2, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | A9How to stay safe during lightning By KIM LEATHERMAN Staff WriterSEBRINGÂ„ Lighting can strike anywhere at any time but it sure seems that Central Florida sees more than its fair share. Weather experts say you would be right. Florida also has the most lightning-related deaths in North America and is called the ÂLightning Capital of the United StatesÂŽ You would be right with that conclusion as well. Over the years, Florida has been called the ÂLightning Capital of the WorldÂŽ so often that most people believe it to be true. However, that distinction really belongs to Lake Maracaibo in North Venezuela, according to data by NASA. This has been a deadly year, however, with Â“ve people killed by lightning strikes in Florida and 17 nationally. Consider that Â“ve was the stateÂs total last year, according to the National Weather Service. The Weather Network reported that Canada had 9-10 people last year die from lightning. Accuweather estimates 3,500 lightning strikes a year, for a total of 1.2 million ground lightning Â”ashes per year. Those same meteorologists say that is so because Floridians have so many outdoor recreation activities, especially on water and golf courses. Lightning can be 50,000 Fahrenheit. That kind of heat can kill instantly. Those who survive can have lasting neurological damage. According to Accuweather, the amount of damage done to a body directly correlates to whether the strike was direct, from cloud to human, or indirect, where the bolt hits another object Â“rst before traveling to the human. Thunderstorms are almost a guarantee, safety should be a top priority. The National Weather Service has good safety guidelines posted. The meteorologists agree that there is no place safe outdoors during a storm with lightning. If you can see it or hear thunder, it can potentially strike you. Move into a shelter, a building with enclosed plumbing or a car with a metal roof. Stay in the shelter until no thunder has been heard for 30 minutes. People in homes are not immune to lightning strikes either. Lightning can travel through electricity lines and plumbing. Hang up landlines and unplug cell phones from their charges before using. Stay out of showers, baths, sinks and faucets. Stay away from windows, cement walls and screen lanai. Do not stand under a tree. There are applications that can be downloaded to both iPhone and Android phones that show live lightning strikes and where they are located. For more safety tips check out the National Weather Service website at weather.gov.

LOCAL SPORTS CLASSIFIEDS, COMICS & PUZZLES INSIDESECTION BSunday, September 2, 2018 Terriers hold off Green DragonsMoore Haven beats Lake Placid in a defensive contestBy JIM TAYLORCorrespondentLAKE PLACID Â… The Lake Placid Green Dragons fell short in a fourth quarter rally in a 14-6 loss to the Moore Haven Terriers on Friday night at Roger Scarborough Memorial Field. The loss evened Lake PlacidÂs record at 1-1 on the season. ÂI think we adjusted well on defense, defense was not the issue,ÂŽ said Â“rst-year Green Dragon head coach Andy Judah. ÂWe have to get better offensively and that starts with me. We have to get better with our emotions.ÂŽ Offensively, the Green Dragons had Â“ve turnovers, with four interceptions and a fumble lost, and went three and out or less on their Â“rst four possessions. Defensively, Lake Placid held the Terriers in check in the Â“rst quarter. The turnovers and Â“eld position battle that favored Moore Haven took its toll in the second quarter as the Terriers scored twice. Lake Placid stopped a Moore Haven 11-play drive the encompassed the last six minutes of the Â“rst quarter as the Green DragonsÂ Shamar Mitchell intercepted a pass in the end zone on the Â“rst play of the second quarter to end the Terriers scoring threat. Moore Haven scored on its next possession on a 48-yard run by Nate Crawford off the wildcat formation around the left side that gave the Terriers a 7-0 lead. JIM TAYLOR/CORRESPONDENTLake PlacidÂs Katwan Ward (3) drags a Moore Haven defender for extra yards during Friday nightÂs game at Roger Scarborough Memorial Field.DRAGONS | 2BThis week offers the monthÂs best fishingThe Freshwater Fishing Forecast for the Â“rst week of September gives anglers the best Â“shing week of the month. Today the last quarter moon phase starts and by Saturday the lunar perigee occurs one day ahead of the new moon. Add a very good weather forecast into the factor-mix and the next seven, no make that the next nine days, could not look any better for the last new moon week of summer. With the last quarter lunar phase occurring today, the sunset and sunrise periods will have the moon underfoot and overhead periods respectively, working in harmony to produce Â“sh and wildlife daily feeding migrations. However it should be noted that due to the Âlow dissolved oxygen period of the dayÂ occurs from 4-7 a.m. causing some lakes to diminish any feeding activity which would naturally occur otherwiseÂ„ reason sunset period is mentioned before the sunrise period. Looking ahead to the Thursday and the start of the new moon week, the moon overhead period will be occurring during the midmorning hours when dissolved oxygen production for the day is at full speed. But, only if there is plenty of sunshine. Any signiÂ“cant cloud cover will cut the oxygen production of most lakes down considerablyÂ„enough to shut down feeding. The weather forecast predicts above average rainfall for today and MondayÂ„cloud cover diminishing feeding activity signiÂ“cantlyÂ„but perhaps today there might be some extended periods of sunshine to trigger feeding. Tuesday through Friday a normal forecast is predicted with just enough of an east wind to keep you cool when Â“sh are biting. Now I know I said in the opening paragraph that the Ânext nine days could not look any betterÂ but that was before I consulted the extended weather forecast for Highlands County. SoÂƒon to the possibility of Bad News. The weather forecast predicts little to no wind for the new moon weekend. Yup, a powerful new moon period with no wind in sweltering heat. Sun umbrellaÂs or not, itÂs going to be tough out there. There is no worse news for the Florida summertime angler. Fishing on a day with calm water reÂ”ecting a hot bright sun in your face, ninety-two degree heat, no wind reliefÂƒall while the solar and lunar inÂ”uence produces the major feeding migration, will result in Âheat-strokes instead of a hook-setsÂ.

The win improved the Wildcats to 2-0, while the tough loss dropped the Blue Streaks to 0-1. ÂIt was a tough, physical game like we knew it would be,ÂŽ said Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott. ÂWe knew Hardee wasnÂt going to quit and they are a good football team. WeÂre a good team but we didnÂt take advantage of some opportunities and Hardee made one more play than we did.ÂŽ After a scoreless Â“rst quarter that was dominated by defense, Hardee struck Â“rst as quarterback James Pearson connected with wide receiver Quintin Lindsey on a 40-yard touchdown pass down the left sideline. The extra point gave the Wildcats a 7-0 lead with 20.7 seconds left in the half. ÂWe made some mistakes and left some plays on the Â“eld,ÂŽ said Scott. ÂWe made some adjustments and executed better BY MARK PINSON/STAFF WRITERSebring quarterback DJ Williams (3) scores in the rst overtime during Friday nightÂs game against Hardee. The Wildcats edged the Blue Streaks by a score of 29-28 in a double-overtime thriller. Avon Park overpowers DesotoRed Devis earn road win over BulldogsBy RUTH ANNE LAWSONStaff WriterARCADIA Â… The Avon Park Red Devils dominated against the Desoto Bulldogs Friday night. The Red Devils fought their way to a 27-13 victory. Avon Park remains undefeated with a record of 2-0. ÂWe made some silly mistakes that could have cost us big time,ÂŽ said Avon Park Coach Jerry Hudnell. ÂWe played with heart and did not let it cost us. Silly mistakes are killing us if we get those shored up we will be pretty good. Javarius Smith made some big plays tonight and I have been waiting on him to come. We need those basketball player types to spread the Â“eld and make the other team play fair. Our quarterback Tyrek Dunlap stood out to me with his composure. This is only his second game at varsity quarterback. He looks like a seasoned veteran.ÂŽ The Bulldogs got on the board in the Â“rst quarter. DesotoÂs quarterback Arnold Mele, handed the ball off to Jino Washington who ran the ball in for an 8-yard touchdown. The Bulldogs were pushed back to the 20yard line after a couple of Â”ags but got the extra point for a 7-0 lead with 5:33 left in the Â“rst period. Avon Park Â“nally got on the scoreboard when Dunlap escaped for a nice run to the DeSoto 30. Dunlap then hit Smith for a 30-yard touchdown. Cameron Bolen kicked the extra point to tie the game at 7 with 3:45 left in the second quarter. The Bulldogs responded with a score as Washington broke loose for a touchdown.

The Terriers scored four plays later despite a valiant goal-line stand by Lake Placid on a 1-yard run by Johnny Crawford to make the score 14-0 at the half. After a scoreless third quarter, the Lake Placid defense brought life back into the game when they stripped Moore Haven of the ball in the fourth quarter. Recovering the football and keeping his balance, Javari White scampered 13 yards for the touchdown to make the score 14-6 with Â“ve minutes left to play. Lake Placid did not get the opportunity to tie the game as Moore Haven strung together a couple of Â“rst downs to run out the clock. Katwan Ward led the Green Dragons with 64 yards rushing on eight carries in the loss. ÂI did not make the right play calls, so I have to get better,ÂŽ said Judah. ÂI am glad we are playing with emotion. It is a telling time right now, this is going to deÂ“ne our year on what we do.

AVON PARK RED DEVILS3:16 left in the half. Avon Park was forced to punt but DeSoto fumbled the ball and the Red Devils recovered on the Bulldog 45. Avon Park capitalized on the break as Dunlap passed to Smith for a 45yard touchdown. Bolen booted the extra point to give the Red Devils a 14-13 lead at the half. ÂWe played good but we need to work harder on defense and come out of the gate harder,ÂŽ said Dunlap. ÂIt feels great to get the win. We have some things to work on next week. My plays were alright tonight but I can do better. I am trying to keep everyone together, make sure everyone is healthy and strong. Our team is alright we still have work to put in to get better. I like our new coach a lot and he is teaching us a lot. We are going to put this game behind us and get ready for Hardee. We are going to practice and work on some things. ÂŽ Desoto fumbled late in the third quarter and Avon ParkÂs Anthony Barcinas wrapped the ball up and the Red Devils took over on their own 7-yard line. Avon Park added to its lead as David Martin scored on a 13-yard run. The extra point was missed but the Red Devils led 20-13 with 11:56 left in the fourth quarter. Desoto was forced to punt and Avon ParkÂs Earl Collins returned the ball to the Bulldogs 1-yard line. Dunlap scored on a keeper and the extra point stretched the Red Devils lead to an overwhelming 27-13 with 5:28 left in the game. Avon ParkÂs Jalen Turner sacked DesotoÂs quarterback and the Red Devils ran out the clock to seal the victory. ÂI think we are doing pretty well so far this season,ÂŽ Hudnell said. ÂWe need to work on our intensity. This is our second week in a row that we came out Â”at. That is my fault and I need to get these guys ready to play. I think both of our offensive coordinators, Will English, and our defensive coordinator, Lee Elder, called great games. The big plays that Desoto had is because our guys were off doing their own thing instead of doing their job and it cost us. Once we learn that our individual jobs are important and we need to do those jobs, then everything will be great.

B4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 2, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com you hope and pray the weatherman isÂƒ.Â”at out wrong. Let next weekend be the time. Best Fishing Days: Of the next four days, today and Wednesday will produce the best ÂÂ“shing windÂ along with predominately sunny skies which will result in greater feeding activity and comfortable Â“shing conditions. Major Fishing Period: Today the moon underfoot period occurs at 7:08 p.m. and the sunset at 7:45 p.m. and will create a feed intensity rating of 5-6 from 6-9 p.m. This period should remain productive until Tuesday and perhaps an hour later for Wednesday. Minor Fishing Period: The moonset occurs at 1:31 p.m. and solar noon at 1:24 p.m. today and the daily atmospheric pressure spike period has been occurring during the late morning hours. Therefore from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. a feed intensity rating of 4-5 will occur. The greater the sunshine the greater the feeding activity. Prime Monthly Periods: September 7-11 strong new moon, 23-27 weak full moon, October 6-11 new moon, 21-26 full moon.

Seasonal Safety Notes: Lightning is a very serious threat during the Florida rainy season. The standard rule: Be no more than 3-4 minutes away from a vehicle or permanent structure. SoÂƒthe time your boat is able to travel from your Â“shing-hole to one of the two safe-place options, should be less than 4 minutes. If you get caught on the lake with no time to get to safety, keep motors Âin the waterÂ and lay down as low as possible andÂƒ.. persuade yourself not be this irresponsible with yourself ever again. Istokpoga.info News: The lake level is at 38.53 feet above sea level, which is the maximum level in the seasonal management schedule. The minimum level currently is 38.25Â. Today, three of four S68 spillway gates are open 12 inches and Â”owing a combined 950 cubic feet per second to keep on schedule. This seasonal Ârain-buffer scheduleÂ is necessary because the lake Â“lls six times faster than water is able to be released during major rain events. Visit Istokpoga.info website and click on the links to the South Florida Water Mgmt. (SFWMD) real time S68 and S68X spillway gates status webpage.

The annual end-ofyear banquet was again held at the Heritage Hall at Purple Woods Conservation Area, and arranged by Porsche Cars Canada, based in Toronto. Emceed by David Bradley Â… the Breaking News Producer for News Talk 1010 in Toronto Â… remarks were also given by President and CEO of Porsche Cars Canada Marc Ouayoun and President and CEO of Porsche Motorsports North America Dr. Daniel Armbruster ahead of the distribution of championship trophies and awards. The following are quotes from the driversÂ acceptance speeches. Zacharie Robichon, Platinum Champion: ÂFirst of all, IÂd like to thank the team. If it wasnÂt for Mark Motors and Bestline Auto Tech, I really wouldnÂt be in this position. So I need to thank them because a lot of times, they had more conÂ“dence in me than I had in myself. That really allowed me to take a step back and realize that these guys have so much experience in this industry and if they believe in me, there must be a reason for it. ÂThis year has been a really great year and of course with my favorite red head in the world (teammate Roman De Angelis) right beside me all the time. With the red hair you can literally see his head on Â“re when heÂs been behind me. But really, itÂs been tough and a lot of fun. From the outside it may look like we had a dominant year, but every single session and every single lap was a battle with him and everyone else we were racing against. ÂThank you to Porsche, my family, my parents, my girlfriend who all take their time out so I can drive race cars all the time and of course everyone from Porsche Canada for their support because thereÂs no other brand that supports us the way Porsche does.ÂŽ Robichon was also awarded the keys to a white Porsche 911 Carrera S that he will be able to drive for one year. Roman De Angelis, Second Place in Platinum Championship: ÂFirst off, I would like to congratulate Zach Robichon. IÂve never seen anyone drive as well as he has all year. Everything heÂs done is textbook so even trying to compare to the level he was on was super difÂ“cult. IÂd also like to thank everyone at Mark Motors Racing for giving me the opportunity to do what weÂve done the last two years, and also Marco Cirone, who if it wasnÂt for him I wouldnÂt be in the position IÂm in right now. Also, thanks to Kelly Moss Racing who came up and supported me as well this year.ÂŽ Remo Ruscitti, Third Place in Platinum Championship: ÂFor me, a little bit of highs and lows this year but wow, what a tough year. Roman and Zach were really quick all year. Having teammates like them with so much experience made me really elevate my level. Thank you Bestline, OpenRoad Auto Group, Porsche Center Langley and of course Porsche Canada. ItÂs an awesome series. I think itÂs so great the dealerships really support young talent like myself to create a career in this tough motorsports world. Thank you to all my competitors, IÂve got so many friends that IÂve been racing against here the last two years and itÂs been a really tough and fun challenge. I hope to continue with the Porsche brand for many years to come.ÂŽ Michael Mrak, Dealer Principle and Owner of Mark Motors Racing, Team Champion: ÂHere we are today. Back in February when we were putting our team together, we didnÂt know where we would be. But we had a lot of conÂ“dence in our team and our drivers. Then thinking back Â“ve years ago when we started this racing team, we did the same thing. One thing that hasnÂt changed is that thereÂs spirit in the team and the drivers thatÂs never changed. I can tell you over the years thereÂs been times weÂve just felt like running off a cliff and other times youÂre satisÂ“ed with the wins you have. This is one of those times. WeÂre truly proud with the Mark Motors group and the team we have here today.ÂŽ Lisa Mrak, Executive Vice President and CEO of Mark Motors Racing, Team Champion: ÂI donÂt think weÂd have the opportunity to stand here and represent our drivers and our teams if it wasnÂt for Porsche Canada to support us in the role that started eight years ago. ItÂs growing and getting better for us. IÂm honored to be with these guys and the team and thatÂs what itÂs all about. With them and all of us, congratulations on what a great season this was.ÂŽ Patrick Dussault, Season-Long Yokohama Hard Charger Award Winner: First of all, congratulations to Mark Motors and Zach. I think itÂs pretty clear this season that they have dominated the year. For me, itÂs pretty fun to get this award. We had a very competitive season and a couple guys that were hard to pass. I want to thank my team, Lauzon Autosport, my main sponsors Porsche Rive-Sud and Lauzon Laval, my family for supporting me two seasons in a row. I hope to come back this year to compete for that championship.ÂŽ Michael Fantin, Spirit of Speed Award Recipient: ÂIÂm not one for speeches for those that know me, but what I can say is that IÂm extremely appreciative to be here. It is a dream to race in this series. Zach, Roman, you guys are awesome so kudos to you guys and congratulations. Thank you to my wife for supporting me, with three small kids, say no more. Thank you to everyone and I look forward to next year.ÂŽ Martin Harvey, Platinum Masters Champion: ÂIÂve been racing with (fellow Platinum Masters competitor) Perry (Bortolotti) and others for years. WeÂve supported the series for a long time and I wish we had a lot of Masters, weÂre here to support the series, but also for the future and for the young drivers.ÂŽ Lauzon Autosport accepted the Gold Championship on behalf of winning driver Michel Bonnet who could not be present at the banquet. IMSA PHOTOThe Porsche GT3 Cup held its banquet to celebrate its champions from the 2018 season. Chris Dyson second in Trans Am SeriesVeteran driver moving up in standingsBy Special to Highlands News-SunA strong second place in last weekendÂs Ryan Companies Road America Classic at Road America snapped Chris DysonÂs four-race string of misfortune in the Trans Am presented by Pirelli series. Combined with a win and a second place in the Â“rst two races of the season, the podium Â“nish at Road America also moved Dyson back into second place in the season-long chase for the Trigon Trophy thatÂs awarded to the winner of the seriesÂ driver championship. ÂThe car has been fast and IÂve been in the hunt at every race,ÂŽ said Dyson, who started from the front row at Road America. ÂBut in the four races before this one all we had to show for it was a thirdplace Â“nish at Pittsburgh. (Championship leader) Ernie Francis (Jr.) had a huge crash in practice and ran the race in a borrowed car. IÂm glad he wasnÂt hurt and impressed that he was able to race at all. Combined with my good result the series championship is suddenly more competitive, though Ernie still has an advantage in the points and heÂll be tough to overtake in points in the remaining four races.ÂŽ This past SaturdayÂs race-long battle around the 4.0-mile Road America circuit with veteran driver Boris Said Dyson rates as one of the most enjoyable in his career. ÂWe had a good balance on the car from the Â“rst session of the weekend,ÂŽ Dyson said. ÂBut Lawrence Loshak was phenomenally quick all weekend and we knew he was going to be really hard to beat. And while we out-qualiÂ“ed Boris to get on the front row, I knew he had big straightline speed and around Road America that is a distinct advantage.ÂŽ At the green Â”ag Said muscled past for second and Dyson said he resolved to keep the pressure on the leaders during the early laps. Loshak was sidelined with a mechanical issue, which left the battle between Said and Dyson. ÂI spent a few laps trying to Â“gure out how Boris and I stacked up against each other,ÂŽ Dyson said. ÂI was better in the braking zones and the high-speed corners but he had the edge on the straights. BorisÂs rear tires were starting to go off and I could see his car was getting loose. But Boris is smart and cagey and while he raced clean, he did what he needed to keep me behind. My hatÂs off to Boris and the Pancho Weaver team. It was a tremendous win for them and we had lots of folks come by afterwards to tell us how much they enjoyed watching the two of us battling for the win. These kind of head-tohead dogÂ“ghts are what make Trans Am what it is and why as drivers we race.ÂŽ The strong result on the Wisconsin road circuit follows on an equally encouraging experience in his second-ever USAC Silver Crown outing in the Bettenhausen 100 at the Illinois State Fairground the week before and puts Dyson in a positive state of mind as he prepares for the Â“nal outing of his rookie season in the Silver Crown series this weekend in the Ted Horn 100 on the one-mile dirt oval at the Duquoin State Fairgrounds. At SpringÂ“eld Dyson qualiÂ“ed 29th in the 43car Â“eld and then raced his way into the 100-mile feature in a 12-lap ÂlastchanceÂŽ race. He started the feature 28th and raced all the way up to 13th at the Â“nish, taking the Wilwood Brakes award. ÂSpringÂ“eld was a blast,ÂŽ Dyson said. ÂIt is a legendary mile oval and it lives up to all the billing. I was probably a little conservative learning the track but itÂs a place that demands respect. The track was heavy with moisture early on and was pretty dynamic all day. In the main event the car was fantastic. The leading three came through and I just focused on following them as they marched through the Â“eld. We were able to make up a lot of positions that way and I was happy with the Â“nish and with how much we learned.ÂŽ Looking ahead to Sunday eveningÂs race, Dyson noted that ÂDuquoin should be very interesting. ItÂs not called the Magic Mile for nothing and I am really looking forward to my fourth-ever Silver Crown race. At the same time, IÂm sorry that there are no more dirt races after Sunday.ÂŽ The Duquoin race marks the seventh of eight straight weekends where Dyson is racing in the Trans Am or Silver Crown. The Trans Am race at Watkins Glen International follows Duquoin and then Dyson has a week off before the Trans Am series resumes at Virginia International Raceway on September 21.

SebringÂs Jordan Rose (42) applies pressure on Hardee quarterback James Pearson during the second half of Friday nightÂs game. SEBRING BLUE STREAKSin the second half.ÂŽ The Sebring defense forced Hardee to punt on its Â“rst possession of the second half to allow the Blue Streak offense to go to work. On third down, Sebring senior quarterback DJ Williams broke loose on an impressive 68-yard scoring run. The extra point tied the score at 7 with 8:55 left in the third period. After forcing a Hardee punt, Sebring went on a nice drive capped with Williams Â“nding Norris Taylor on a 28-yard touchdown pass. The point after gave the Blue streaks a 14-7 lead with 5:33 remaining in the third quarter. The score stayed the same until Hardee managed to drive down the Â“eld with under two minutes left in the game. The Wildcats scored on a 2-yard run by Ellis Hodges. The point after tied the game at 14 with 1:45 left in regulation. The game went to overtime and Hardee scored on a short run by Hodges. The point after made it 21-14. Sebring answered on a 2-yard quarterback keeper by Williams to tie the game. The Blue Streaks took the lead in the second overtime on a Williams to Jacob Pasley 6-yard scoring pass. The Blue Streaks kicked the extra point to go up 28-21. Hardee didnÂt blink as Hodges plunged in from a yard out. The Wildcats rolled the dice and went for two points. Pearson rolled to his right and found Dylan Davis open in the end zone for the 2-point conversion to give Hardee the 29-28 victory. ÂThis was a tough game and we need to learn from this and get better,ÂŽ Scott said. ÂWe didnÂt step up at certain times and Hardee made a gutsy call and executed the play. Hopefully, this loss will motivate our guys to do more.ÂŽ Sebring is back on the gridiron on Friday night when the Blue Streaks host Bartow. ÂWeÂre going to work hard in practice this week to get better,ÂŽ Scott said. ÂWeÂre looking forward to being at home and playing in front of our fans.ÂŽSTREAKSFROM PAGE 1Badno=3605689 Looking to Relocate or Become a Snowbird?Â€CHILDREN & PETS WELCOMEÂ€ RV LOTS FOR CAMPINGÂ€ STOCKED LAKEÂ€ CLUBHOUSE W/EXERCISE ROOM, AND LIBRARYÂ€ CHURCH ON PREMISESLOCATED AT: 1400 CR17A NORTH Â€ AVON PARK, FL 33825 Homes for Sale!

By JOSEF FEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESSJERUSALEM Â„ The Palestinians on Saturday condemned the U.S. decision to end its decades of funding for the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees, calling it an attack on the Palestinian people and accusing the Trump administration of trying to remove sensitive core issues from the negotiating table as it says it is preparing a Mideast peace initiative. The announcement raised new questions about the viability of any future U.S. peace plan. President Donald TrumpÂs Mideast team, led by his adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, have been working on their plan for about a year and a half but have not said when it will be made public. The Palestinians accuse the U.S. of being unfairly biased in favor of Israel, citing a series of steps by the White House. Trump has recognized Jerusalem as IsraelÂs capital over Palestinian objections and last week cut $200 million in development aid to the Palestinians. FridayÂs decision cut an additional $300 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which serves millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants across the region. The Palestinians say these steps are aimed at imposing outcomes for two of the most sensitive issues in the conÂ” ict Â„ the fate of contested Jerusalem and the plight of Palestinian refugees Â„ without negotiations. ÂWhat is the American administration doing? They are pre-empting, prejudging issues reserved for permanent status,ÂŽ said Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator.Palestinians condemn US ending funding for UN refugee agencyBy MIKE CORDERASSOCIATED PRESSAMSTERDAM Â„ A 19-year-old Afghan citizen had a Âterrorist motiveÂŽ for allegedly stabbing two Americans at the main train station in Amsterdam, city authorities in the Dutch capital said Saturday. Amsterdam police shot and wounded the suspect after the double stabbing Friday at Central Station. The local government said hours later that it appeared the victims werenÂt targeted for a speciÂ“ c reason, but added that investigators were not excluding any possibilities. After the U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands on Saturday identiÂ“ ed the people injured as American tourists, Amsterdam City Hall gave an update. ÂBased on the suspectÂs Â“ rst statements, he had a terrorist motive,ÂŽ the city administration said in a statement that did not elaborate on what the statements were or how they showed intent. The wounded Americans were recovering in a hospital from what police termed serious but not life-threatening injuries. Their identities have not been released. The suspect, who was identiÂ“ ed only as Jawed S. in line with privacy rules in the Netherlands, also remains hospitalized. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte conÂ“ rmed on Twitter that the investigation was focused Saturday on extremist ideology. W. had a residency permit from Germany. German authorities searched his home and seized data storage devices that would be analyzed as part of the investigation, the city government statement said. He was scheduled to be arraigned during a Amsterdam: ÂTerrorist motiveÂ alleged in attack on AmericansFUNDING | 8ATTACK | 8 Cindy McCain weeps and leans her head on her sonÂs shoulder as opera singer Renee Fleming performs a moving rendition of ÂDanny BoyÂ at the end of the memorial service. By LAURA KING and JA CKIE CALMESLOS ANGELES TIMES (TNS)WASHINGTON Â„ OfÂ“ cial Washington gathered at the National Cathedral Saturday to say farewell to Sen. John McCain, capping days of tributes to the war hero and two-time Republican presidential candidate who died last week of brain cancer at 81. Two former presidents who prevented McCain from winning that ofÂ“ ce, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush, delivered eulogies to the six-term Arizona senator before 2,500 invited guests. Their keynote role was McCainÂs idea Â„ his Â“ nal, poignant nod to the bipartisanship that was his hallmark. It was also an implicit yet clear rebuke of the current president, an undercurrent that also ran through the eulogistsÂ remarks. ÂHe respected the dignity inherent in every life, a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators,ÂŽ said Bush, who defeated McCain in a rancorous race for the 2000 Republican presidential nomination that left McCain embittered for several years. ÂHe was honorable, always recognizing that his opponents were still patriots and human beings.ÂŽ ÂPerhaps above all, John detested the abuse of power,ÂŽ Bush said. Obama, who defeated McCain in 2008 after the senator won his partyÂs nomination, said of McCainÂs choice of his two former adversaries as eulogists: ÂWhat better way to get a last laugh than to make George and I say nice things about him to a national audience?ÂŽ Despite their many differences on foreign policy, Obama said, ÂWe stood together on AmericaÂs role as the one indispensable nation, believing that with great power and great blessings comes great responsibilities.ÂŽ In his dying weeks and months, McCain presided over many of the preparations for his remembrance, including an abundance of symbolic touchstones from his life and career, and the instruction that the current president not be included. While President Donald Trump was absent, the implicit criticisms in the past presidentsÂ remarks, and othersÂ, made him a presence. ÂSo much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse can seem small and mean and petty, trafÂ“ cking in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage,ÂŽ Obama said. ÂItÂs a politics that pretends to be brave and tough but in fact is born of fear.ÂŽ ÂJohn called on us to be bigger than that. He called on us to be better than that.ÂŽ Daughter Meghan McCain delivered the Â“ rst of the eulogies and, during her emotional recollections of her father, she expressed a clear rebuke of the current president: ÂThe America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great.ÂŽ That evoked the Â“ rst applause from an audience that included some administration ofÂ“ cials, among them TrumpÂs daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

Broward County will recount ballots this weekend in the school board race between incumbent Donna Korn and her challenger, Ryan Petty. RyanÂs daughter Alaina was among those killed in the Feb. 14 attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The initial count shows Korn received 50.4 percent of the vote in TuesdayÂs election for a countywide seat on the nine-member board. She needs to stay above 50 percent to avoid a November runoff with Petty, who Â“nished second at 31 percent in the three-person Â“eld. Results are expected to be announced on Sunday.Man convicted of killing wife, unborn childOCALA (AP) Â„ A Florida man has been convicted of killing his pregnant wife and unborn child. The Ocala-Star Banner reports that 48-year-old Vincent LaSara Terry was found guilty Thursday of two counts of second-degree murder. He faces life in prison at a Oct. 1 sentencing. Authorities say Chrystal Terry disappeared in December 2017 when she was a little more than 4 months pregnant. Investigators later found photos of the woman dead, naked and beaten on Vincent TerryÂs phone. They also reported Â“nding a large blood stain on the Â”oor of the coupleÂs SummerÂ“eld home. TerryÂs attorney argued that the woman disappeared because she went on a drug binge, and she wasnÂt dead in the photos on TerryÂs phone.Suspect fleeing Florida deputies jumps in pond, drownsORLANDO (AP) Â„ Florida authorities say a suspect Â”eeing from deputies drowned after jumping into a retaining pond. The Orange County SheriffÂs OfÂ“ce said 49-yeaer-old Corey Anderson ran when ofÂ“cers found felony narcotics on him. During the chase, Anderson jumped into a retention pond. The sheriffÂs ofÂ“ce says deputies tried to save him, but Anderson drowned.Oops! Pilot almost lands at wrong Fort Myers airportFORT MYERS (AP) Â„ An American Airlines Â”ight from Philadelphia almost landed at the wrong Florida airport before air trafÂ“c controllers guided it back on course. The Fort Myers NewsPress reports that a pilot began approaching Page Field on Thursday, but the plane was supposed to be landing at Southwest Florida International Airport more than seven miles away. Page Field is a general aviation airport that used to serve as the regionÂs commercial airport until Southwest Florida International opened in 1983. A local pilot who examined Â”ight date told the newspaper the Airbus A320 descended to about 800 feet on approach to Page Field before it climbed back to 1,500 feet and zigzagged to the correct airport.

An Ocala police news release says 20-year-old McKenzee Dobbs and 32-year-old William Parrish Jr. were arrested last week following several overdoses connected to the house. Both face multiple charges related to the possession and sale of fentanyl, a powerful opioid painkiller. Police say ofÂ“cers collected drugs, paraphernalia and cash while executing a search warrant at the home Aug. 24. Investigators determined that Dobbs and Parrish had been selling drugs through a kitchen window. Police say theyÂve recorded 98 drug overdoses this year within Ocala city limits, and 13 were fatal. Police were working to determine if any fatal overdoses were connected to the mobile home.EA sets up GoFundMe, donates $1M to shooting victimsJACKSONVILLE (AP) Â„ Video game company Electronic Arts has donated $1 million to the victims of a shooting at a Florida video game tournament. GoFundMe announced in a news release Friday that EAÂs Jacksonville Tribute Fund has a goal of $2 million. Authorities say 28-yearold Taylor Robertson and 22-year-old Elijah Clayton were killed at a Jacksonville mall Sunday when a fellow gamer opened Â“re at the Madden NFL 19 tournament. Eleven others were injured. EA says theyÂve partnered with GoFundMe and the National Compassion Fund to give 100 percent of the collected funds to the wounded and the families of Robertson and Clayton. EA Sports publishes the Madden football games, and the company organized the tournament where the shooting occurred.By ELLIE RUSHINGSOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINELFORT LAUDERDALE Â„ While many people view South FloridaÂs invasive iguana population as an annoyance at best and a pandemic at worst, Ishmeal Asson sees something else: lunch. The Fort Lauderdale resident and native Trinidadian considers eating iguanas to be a way of life. Growing up, Asson learned to roast the island critters at roadside and backyard gatherings. Iguana is a staple in the Caribbean, where the reptiles are a native species and are known as Âpollo de los rboles,ÂŽ or chicken of the trees. Their meat contains more protein than chicken, and members of some cultures believe it has medicinal properties. In South Florida, Asson is hardly alone in his taste for cooked iguana. He has more than a dozen friends who eat the animal, and they frequently hunt them using nets, snares and traps. ÂWe are having a cookout this weekend,ÂŽ he said. Asson said he and his friends use a traditional method of preparing iguana. ÂFirst, we cut off the head, then roast (the body) on the Â“re. You have to roast it with the skin on because itÂs easier to take the skin off once itÂs roasted,ÂŽ he said. ÂThen, we cut it up into pieces and season it with a lot of fresh produce like chives and onions. I love to season it with curry and hot pepper, too. It tastes like chicken.ÂŽ As someone who has eaten iguanas his entire life, Asson still Â“nds humor in eating the prehistoric-looking reptiles. ÂI prefer to eat it with the skin on,ÂŽ he said, Âbecause then I know what IÂm eating. It kind of gives you a sense of humor, like, ÂThis is iguana,Â you know?ÂŽ While Asson and other South Florida iguana lovers can nab the lizards for free and with little difÂ“culty, their peers in other states order iguana meat from companies such as Exotic Meat Markets. Anshu Pathak, owner of the California-based company, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that he imports 10,000 pounds of iguana a month from Florida trappers. He said that his company, which sells such items as lion steak and raccoon sausage, is helping to control the iguana population. ÂI am making iguana sausages, hot dogs, iguana burgers,ÂŽ Pathak said. ÂI am trying to do anything and everything to make them palatable to the public. The industry is only growing.ÂŽ He said he sells the meat to customers and restaurants across the United States, offering boneless meat for $59.99 per pound and whole, skin-on iguana for $49.99. Pathak said he used to import iguanas from Puerto Rico, but now gets them from trappers in Florida. He said that trappers sometimes send the reptiles frozen, but mostly transport them alive and by airplane. ÂA lot of my customers want them whole, with guts in,ÂŽ he said. Pathak said his facility has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. When he receives live iguanas, he said, he puts them in a freezer to kill them. The FDA did not respond to inquiries about the consumption and commercialization of iguana meat. Selling iguanas requires a Florida wildlife license, though a permit is not needed to possess one, according to Robert Klepper, law-enforcement media spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. There is no prohibition on who can buy an iguana, Klepper said. Brian Wood, owner of All American Gator, an alligator-processing and iguana-trapping company in Hollywood, is avidly searching for a market for his trapped iguanas. Wood said he captures more than a thousand of the creatures a month. ÂI feel bad just killing them and wasting it, so I started keeping them,ÂŽ he said. Now, more than a thousand of the lizards live on his iguana farm in LaBelle, in Hendry County. Because he captures so many, Wood said he feeds some to his alligators and turns others into wallets. ÂWith the number of iguanas I catch, I could make a fortune off selling them if I could Â“nd a market,ÂŽ Wood said. ÂWhen I Â“rst started selling alligator, people asked, ÂWho would eat alligator?Â Now, I sell 80,000 pounds of it a year.ÂŽ Florida isnÂt the only place where the lizards run rampant. Green iguanas began to take over Puerto Rico in the early 2000s, undermining roadways, chomping on native plants and harassing islanders. It was when they started obliterating the islandÂs crops that residents asked the government for help. A bounty of up to $6 per pound was placed on the creaturesÂ heads. Similar to FloridaÂs python hunt, the Puerto Rican government issued permits in 2012 for private companies to legally hunt iguanas, said Daniel Galan-Kercado, who was secretary of Natural Resources for Puerto Rico at the time. ÂIt was very effective in the Â“rst two years. They were capturing maybe 200 to 300 per week,ÂŽ Galan-Kercado said. Private entities paid hunters for iguanas and then processed and exported the meat to the United States, Central America and Asia, he said. Some Puerto Ricans also started farming iguana, and it became a signiÂ“cant industry. Commercializing iguana provided an answer for Puerto Rico, but so far, no iguana-export industry operates in Florida. Moreover, the reptile is far from appearing on most FloridiansÂ dinner tables. ÂYou just have to try it, though,ÂŽ said Brittany Peters, who during a recent trip to South Florida made an iguana-inspired meal for the Â“rst time. With no experience cooking the beasties, Peters went with a simpler route than roasting the meat over an open Â”ame Â„ she made burritos. Peters shot two green iguanas in the Keys, then skinned, boiled and sauteed the meat at her relativesÂ home in Fort Lauderdale. She boiled the skinned body for about an hour, then picked off the tender meat. She added a chili-lime seasoning from Trader JoeÂs before sauteing it with onions. Peters paired the white meat with sour cream, cilantro, avocado and lime for a ÂdeliciousÂŽ reptile burrito. (A note of caution to veteran and would-be iguana eaters: Although it is illegal to do so, nuisance iguanas are occasionally poisoned. Before biting into iguana meat, make sure it does not contain any poisons or other harmful substances.) As an avid hunter, Peters lets none of the animals she kills go to waste. ÂIf youÂre going to participate in killing them, (iguana) is good enough, healthy enough and tasty enough that you should absolutely take the time to cook it, too,ÂŽ Peters said. Overall, she gives her recipe three stars, but only because sheÂs not a chef. ÂWith some classes, I think I could get it to taste even better,ÂŽ she said.Chicken of the trees: Eating South FloridaÂs iguanas AP PHOTOSIn this June 24, photo, iguanas gather on a seawall in the Three Islands neighborhood of Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3Dear Mr. Berko: When Tesla stock was trading for $345, you told me to sell my 100 shares, which I had invested in at $96. I did. But within a few weeks, Tesla was trading at $386. You were persona non grata at our house. Now Tesla trades for $318. I need to know whether I should invest in it again. Â„ RG, Rochester, Minn. Dear RG: ThereÂs a difference between an investment and a speculation. Elon Musk founded Tesla in 2003, the year that Funny Cide won the Kentucky Derby, Norah Jones dominated the Grammy Awards and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Oakland Raiders in the Super Bowl. Tesla became the leading developer of electric automobiles. In 2010, Musk began running out of money Â„ but he believed that soon, Tesla would have tens of thousands of all-electric vehicles on the road. However, numerous snags and unexpected production delays continued to hurt production and sales. Musk badly needed money, so he decided to take Tesla public because it would be easier to lay off risks on thousands of small shareholders than it would be to do so on a consortium of private lenders. So Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley sold 13.3 million shares at $17 each, raising a mingy $220 million, and that was the beginning of TeslaÂs $9 billion of current debt. It was fascinating to watch Tesla Inc. (TSLA$318) zoom higher and higher and climb to $386 a share in June 2017 and then Â„ gasp Â„ crash to $266 in nine months. And it was a delightful but frightful brouhaha to watch option traders and their nominees, on both sides of the pit, using put and call options (plus a combination of strips, straddles and straps), which can generate sweet proÂ“ts as TSLA moves up and as TSLA moves down. TSLA is not the kind of common stock in which one invests money. It is not an investment that belongs in pension plan accounts, nor is it a stock for orphans, widows, widowers, the illegitimate children of widowers or conservative investors. In fact, TSLA is not an investment at all; rather, itÂs a screwball speculation like penny stocks, oil and gas partnerships, and maps of the Lost DutchmanÂs Gold Mine. Tesla is well-known for missing deadline after deadline and constantly falling short on production numbers. Some watchers believe that Elon spends more time in his world than he does in the real world. Given TSLAÂs 10 straight years of losses totaling over $5.7 billion, working capital deÂ“cit of $1.8 billion, longterm debt of $9.5 billion, operating margins of 2 percent and expected loss of over $7 a share (nearly $2 billion) this year, IÂd not care to own the stock. Elon is certainly an unusual and fascinating fellow, but he just doesnÂt know how to run this business. Like Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla Â„ both of whom were also unusual, fascinating and lacking in the skills needed to manage men Â„ Elon canÂt manage a balance sheet, a marketing program or an income statement. However, if Elon were to leave Tesla Â„ if his huge marble statues were removed from Tesla buildings, along with the life-size paintings, sculptures and large photographs of him Â„ IÂd consider owning the stock. TeslaÂs Model S may be the Â“nest car ever made. I drove one two years ago, and it was a heck of a hoot. In fact, the P85D, the high-performance version of the Model S, is the highest-rated car in the history of Consumer Reports. TSLA was supposed to make $1 a share this year, but the usual Musk-snags have the bottom line showing a $7-per-share loss. Elon projects a proÂ“t for next year. So if you want to speculate, you can buy the stock. (But be mindful that when Tesla begins to report earnings, the stockÂs price will be a lot lower.) If you would prefer to invest, then consider General Mills, Microsoft or AT&T. And when it comes to ElonÂs talk about taking the company private, I doubt that the Saudis are dumb enough to invest in a company that has billions of dollars of losses. Please address your Â“nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O. Box 8303, Largo, FL 33775, or email him at mjberko@ yahoo.com. Invest in Tesla stock again? MalcolmBERKOC By LUIS ALONSO LUGO, PAUL WISEMAN and ROB GILLIESASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump warned Canada on Saturday that it Âwill be outÂŽ of a revised North American trade agreement unless itÂs ÂfairÂŽ to the United States, and he threatened to scrap the current deal should Congress ÂinterfereÂŽ with the negotiations. ÂThere is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal,ÂŽ Trump said in one of a series of tweets as he visited his Virginia golf club while three former presidents and a range of political dignitaries attended a Washington memorial for John McCain. Trump wasnÂt invited. But itÂs not clear whether the Trump administration has the authority to strike a deal with just Mexico, as it announced Monday, and exclude Canada. Also, Congress must approve any rewrite of the North American Free Trade Agreement signed under President Bill Clinton, and might refuse to endorse a deal that leaves longtime ally Canada on the sidelines. Talks to keep Canada in the trade bloc are to resume this coming week as Washington and Ottawa try to break a deadlock over issues such as CanadaÂs dairy market and U.S. efforts to shield drug companies from generic competition. ÂAs weÂve said all week, weÂre working toward a modernized NAFTA that is good for the middle class and people working hard to join it,ÂŽ said Adam Austen, a spokesman for Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. ÂWith good will and Â”exibility on all sides, a winwin-win outcome is achievable. Canada, of course, will only sign a deal which is good for Canada.ÂŽ Trump notiÂ“ed Congress on Friday that he plans to sign an agreement in 90 days with Mexico to replace NAFTA and hopes Canada can brought on board, too. Congress would have to approve any agreement. ÂThere is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal. If we donÂt make a fair deal for the U.S. after decades of abuse, Canada will be out,ÂŽ Trump tweeted. ÂCongress should not interfere w/ these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely & we will be far better off...ÂŽ Earlier, he said he loved Canada, but says ÂtheyÂve taken advantage of our Country for many years!ÂŽ A U.S.-Mexico deal sealed on Monday excluded Canada. Freeland then hurried to Washington for talks aimed at preserving CanadaÂs membership in the regional trade agreement. But Freeland couldnÂt break an impasse in four days of negotiations with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. American and Canadian negotiators will return to negotiations Wednesday. The talks had taken an odd turn for the worse Friday over news that Trump had told Bloomberg News that he wasnÂt willing to make any concessions to Canada. The 24-year-old NAFTA tore down most trade barriers dividing the United States, Mexico and Canada. Trade between the three countries surged. But many manufacturers responded to the agreement by moving factories south of the border to take advantage of low Mexican wages, then shipping goods north to the United States and Canada. Trump has charged that the deal wiped out American factory jobs. He has pledged to negotiate a better deal or withdraw from NAFTA altogether. Talks on a new trade deal started a year ago but bogged down over U.S. demands, including some meant to return manufacturing to the United States. A few weeks ago, the United States began negotiating with Mexico, leaving Canada on the sidelines. Outgoing Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto wanted to sign a deal before he left ofÂ“ce Dec. 1. The deal announced Monday would, among many other things, require that 40 percent to 45 percent of a car be made in a North American country where auto workers made at least $16 an hour Â„ that is, not in Mexico Â„ before qualifying for duty-free status. Canada doesnÂt have much of an objection to the auto provisions of the U.S.-Mexican deal, which would beneÂ“t Canadian workers too. Ottawa does have other complaints. Neither U.S. nor Canadian negotiators are talking publicly about the issues that divide them. Experts have said the Â”ashpoints include trade barriers that protect Canadian dairy farmers and OttawaÂs insistence on keeping NAFTA provisions for resolving disputes. Also nettlesome is a provision in the U.S.-Mexico deal that shields U.S. makers of biologics Â„ ultra-expensive drugs produced in living cells Â„ from generic competition for 10 years instead of the eight Canada is willing to live with: The Canadians fear the protection will drive up drug prices and make their government health care system more costly. The Trump administration had insisted that it wanted a deal by Friday, beginning a 90-day countdown that would let MexicoÂs Nieto sign the pact before leaving ofÂ“ce. But under U.S. trade rules, the U.S. team doesnÂt have to make public the text of the revamped agreement for 30 additional days, buying more time to reach a deal with the Canadians.Trump: Canada Âwill be outÂ of trade deal unless itÂs ÂfairÂ AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump waves to members of the media after arriving on Air Force One, Friday, at Andrews Air Force Base in Md. Watching is Air Force Col. Samuel Chesnut. By ERIC TUCKERASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump Ânodded with approvalÂŽ at the suggestion of a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a court Â“ling that seeks leniency for a former campaign aide who lied to the FBI. Lawyers for George Papadopoulos are seeking probation, saying the foreign policy adviser misled agents during a January 2017 interview not to harm an investigation but rather to Âsave his professional aspirations and preserve a perhaps misguided loyalty to his master.ÂŽ Papadopoulos is a pivotal Â“gure in special counsel Robert MuellerÂs investigation as the Â“rst Trump campaign aide to plead guilty and cooperate with prosecutors. The revelation that heÂd been told by a professor during the campaign that Russia had ÂdirtÂŽ on Democrat Hillary Clinton in the form of emails helped trigger the FBIÂs counterintelligence investigation in July 2016 into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. The 16-page defense memo Â“led late Friday paints Papadopoulos as an eager-to-please campaign aide who was in over his head, and aims to counter the prosecutionÂs narrative that PapadopoulosÂs deception irreparably damaged the investigation. The defense lawyers say Papadopoulos was hired by the campaign in March 2016 despite having no experience with Russian or U.S. diplomacy. That month, he traveled to Italy and connected with a London-based professor who introduced him to a woman described as a niece of PutinÂs even though that was not true. That professor, Joseph Mifsud, would later tell him that individuals in Moscow possessed ÂdirtÂŽ on Clinton. When Papadopoulos returned to Washington, he was Âeager to show his value to the campaignÂŽ and Âwitnessed his career skyrocketing to unimaginable heights.ÂŽ At a March 31 meeting of TrumpÂs national security adviser, Papadopoulos proposed that he could leverage his newfound Russian connections to arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin. ÂWhile some in the room rebuffed GeorgeÂs offer, Mr. Trump nodded with approval and deferred to Mr. Sessions who appeared to like the idea and stated that the campaign should look into it,ÂŽ defense lawyers wrote. That language is a reference to Jeff Sessions, who at the time was a Republican senator from Alabama and key campaign aide and later became the Trump administrationÂs attorney general. Sessions, however, told the House Judiciary Committee last November that he resisted the idea of any Russia meeting. ÂI pushed back at his trip and I was concerned that he not go off somewhere, pretending to represent the Trump campaign,ÂŽ Sessions told lawmakers. ÂHe had no authority for that.ÂŽ The inclusion of details about that meeting by defense lawyers seems intended to show that Papadopoulos provided the Mueller team with valuable insight about Trump campaign operations, even though prosecutors have said in their own sentencing memo that he did not provide Âsubstantial assistance to them.ÂŽ One morning in January 2017, two FBI agents knocked on the door of PapadopoulosÂs motherÂs home seeking to interview him. He agreed to accompany them to their ofÂ“ce thinking they wanted to ask him about a Russian businessman, Sergei Millian, but soon the questions shifted to Russian inÂ”uence in the election Â„ and Papadopoulos was ÂsurprisedÂŽ and caught Âoff guard,ÂŽ the defense lawyers wrote. Defense lawyers acknowledge that Papadopoulos Âlied, minimized, and omitted material factsÂŽ to the FBI about his foreign contacts, including about when he had learned from Mifsud that the Russians had dirt on Clinton.Papadopoulos: Trump ÂnoddedÂ at suggestion of Putin meeting By ADAM PEMBLE and KIRSTEN GRIESHABERASSOCIATED PRESSCHEMNITZ, Germany Â„ Police in eastern Germany halted an anti-migration protest march that emboldened far-right activists started Saturday hoping would launch a nationwide movement capable of challenging the political establishment. A trio of nationalist groups held separate daytime rallies in the city of Chemnitz over the Aug. 26 killing of a German citizen, allegedly by migrants from Syria and Iraq. The two largest groups also organized a joint nighttime march, thinking a broader force might emerge from the display of unity and take hold. If the number of people who attended is any gauge, the envisioned far-right movement was in the earliest of embryonic stages. It drew about 4,500 participants, Saxony state police reported before citing security concerns as the reason for ending the event early. The demonstrators screamed and whistled angrily as ofÂ“cers broke up the protest. The march was stopped several times along the way as counter-protesters blocked the route and the police ofÂ“cers deployed to keep them and the marchers apart Â”ooded into the street. The counter-protesters numbered about 4,000, the state police said. The opposing camps clashed in Chemnitz on Monday, the day after the fatal stabbing of the 35-yearold German citizen and the arrests of the migrants on suspicion of manslaughter. Scenes of vigilantes chasing foreigners in the cityÂs streets have shocked people in other parts of Germany since. Police, at times, were unable to control the earlier protests and clashes. Leaders of the two groups that combined forces on Saturday night cultivated a different image, wearing dark suits and carrying white roses. However, the mood at the event bringing together previously isolated clusters of nationalists Â„ from lawmakers to Hitler-saluting skinheads Â„ darkened as the sun set. People from both ends of the political spectrum could be seen drinking beer and shouting slurs at police. The tension in the air reÂ”ected the polarization over GermanyÂs ongoing effort to come to terms with an inÂ”ux of more than 1 million refugees and migrants seeking jobs since 2015.German police end march envisioned as far-right springboard AP PHOTOPeople participate in a demonstration in Chemnitz, eastern Germany, Saturday.NATIONAL NEWS
Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 hearse bearing his casket across town from the Capitol to the cathedral stopped at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, where McCainÂs wife of 38 years, Cindy, left a wreath of red and white roses accented with blue Â”owers, and a ribbon that read, ÂIn honor of all who served.ÂŽ McCain endured nearly six years of torture in captivity after being shot down as a Navy pilot over Hanoi, but later became a champion of postwar reconciliation and was a widely admired Â“gure in Vietnam. The senatorÂs wife was silently escorted down the inclined walkway alongside the Vietnam Memorial wall by Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House chief of staff John F. Kelly, two former Marine generals McCain knew well and whose appointment to TrumpÂs Cabinet reassured the senator even as he expressed doubts about the presidentÂs Â“tness for ofÂ“ce. At the deepest point of the monument, where the wall angles, a sailor placed the wreath on a stand and the small group, which included McCainÂs seven children, paused for prayer. As they slowly walked back to the motorcade, assembled tourists broke into applause. The memorial service at Washington National Cathedral was intended as a cap to public commemorations that began Wednesday in Phoenix, in his adopted home state of Arizona. The McCain family plans a private burial service on Sunday at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., where the senator, the son and grandson of four-star admirals, graduated in 1958. Invited guests, including foreign dignitaries, military ofÂ“cials and McCainÂs political associates, escorted by Naval Academy cadets in dress whites, began Â“lling the cathedralÂs pews two hours before the start of the service. Among the attendees were Bill and Hillary Clinton and former Sens. Robert Dole, the longtime Republican Senate leader, and Joe Lieberman, the former Democrat whom McCain later said he would have preferred as his 2008 vice presidential running mate, rather than Sarah Palin, who was not invited. Lieberman, in his eulogy, said of McCain: ÂHe regularly reached across party lines because he knew that was the only way to solve problems.ÂŽ The pallbearers chosen reÂ”ected the senatorÂs diverse friendships, including Biden, his Democratic Senate colleague and ObamaÂs vice president; Russian dissident Victor Kara-Murza, and actor-Â“lmmaker Warren Beatty. The funeral follows elegiac commemorations that began Wednesday in McCainÂs home state of Arizona and continued on to the Capitol Rotunda, where his body lay in state Friday, an honor accorded to few Americans. Members of both parties praised the late lawmaker as the embodiment of the traditional ideals of patriotism and civility in a bitterly polarized political era. The presidentÂs absence from the funeral reÂ”ected McCainÂs belief that Trump violates those ideals, and the president returned McCainÂs enmity. Tributes this week, and McCainÂs posthumous farewell delivered Monday by a longtime aide, avoided mentioning Trump by name but lamented the divisiveness in the nationÂs capital and beyond that the president has come to represent. Trump, who had said that McCain did not qualify as a war hero just because of his captivity in North Vietnam, had publicly mocked McCain to the end at political rallies. On Friday, as McCain for the last time was brought to the Capitol where heÂd served in the House and Senate, Trump attended a fundraiser in North Carolina. It was nearly a year ago that McCain received his grim diagnosis of an aggressive glioblastoma, the same type of brain tumor that killed his friend Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat, in 2009. His family announced Aug. 24 that medical treatment for his cancer was being discontinued; the next day, he was dead. By LAURIE KELLMANASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON Â„ Memories mixed with humor, grief and lessons on civility marked Sen. John McCainÂs memorial service Saturday at Washington National Cathedral, the last event in Washington of the Â“ve-day farewell tour. A few scenes:THE RESPECT OF RIVALSKeep on talking, even to rivals. That was the message of two former presidents McCain asked to testify that reconciliation, even amid the knife Â“ght of national politics, is an effort worth making. George W. Bush, who defeated McCainÂs bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 2000, recalled Âa hard-fought personal journey.ÂŽ ÂIn recent years, we sometimes talked of that intense period like football players remembering a big game,ÂŽ Bush said from the pulpit. ÂIn the process, rivalry melted away. In the end, I got to enjoy one of lifeÂs great gifts: the friendship of John McCain. And I will miss him.ÂŽ Barack Obama, meanwhile, said he and McCain ÂdidnÂt advertise it,ÂŽ but they would meet almost weekly in the Oval OfÂ“ce to talk about policy and also their families. ÂAnd our disagreements didnÂt go away during these private conversations. Those were real and they were often deep,ÂŽ Obama said. ÂBut we enjoyed the time we shared away from the bright lights and we laughed with each other and we learned from each other and we never doubted the other manÂs sincerity or the otherÂs patriotism Â„ or that when all was said and done, we were on the same team.ÂŽ SEATMATESIf Hillary Clinton and Dick Cheney could sit next to each other, could there be hope for the divided nation, or Middle East peace? Unclear. But the McCainesque pairing of people who have never been close raised eyebrows. The Democratic presidential nominee and Republican former vice president were among the luminaries and their spouses seated in the front row during McCainÂs memorial service. Clinton, of course, was there as the wife of former President Bill Clinton. Cheney was there because he had been BushÂs vice president. But at a service McCain designed to break down rivalries and encouraged civility, Clinton and Cheney, two of their partiesÂ sharpest partisans, drew stares. ItÂs not clear if the two exchanged any words. LESSONS ON CIVILITYBush and Michelle Obama did. Seated elsewhere in McCain Row 1, the former Republican president at one point could be seen handing the former Â“rst lady, wife of BushÂs Democratic successor, something Â„ which she accepted. It was too far away in the massive cathedral to say for sure. But that didnÂt stop Twitter from speculating that the object might have been candy, or a tissue. During ObamaÂs speech, Mrs. Obama and Bush turned to each other, smiled and nodded. Retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake tweeted a photo of the front row with the caption, ÂDecency wins.ÂŽ GOLFPresident Donald Trump stuck to his Saturday routine Â„ heading to the golf course Â„ as political dignitaries gathered at Washington National Cathedral. Trump left the White House as the late senatorÂs daughter Meghan McCain delivered an emotional rebuke to Trump without mentioning his name. Dressed in a white polo shirt and baseball hat, he entered his motorcade, which whisked him to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia. The president did not offer any commentary on McCainÂs memorial service. The White House did not respond to questions about whether he was watching. TWEET FROM TRUMPWORLDTrump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson tweeted her own contrast with McCain. Â@realDonaldTrump ran for @POTUS ONE time and WON! Some people will never recover from that. #SorryNotSorry Yes, #MAGA,ÂŽ she tweeted during McCainÂs service. She appears to be alluding to McCainÂs two unsuccessful presidential bids, in 2000 and 2008, but lost the general election to Obama. Pierson pinned her tweet to the top of her feed, so it would not be buried under future tweets.BIPARTISAN PALLBEARERSEvery aspect of the senatorÂs weeklong memorial carried political and personal signiÂ“cance, including his pall bearers Saturday. Among them, former Vice President Joe Biden, actor Warren Beatty, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Russian democracy advocate Vladimir KaraMurza, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and former Sens. Russ Feingold, a Wisconsin Democrat; Phil Gramm, a Texas Republican; and Gary Hart, a Colorado Democrat. The group sat together near the side of the altar. A WAVE OF GRIEFMcCainÂs wife, Cindy, was composed during most of the service and other events throughout the Â“ve-day farewell to her husband. But she broke down at SaturdayÂs memorial service as opera singer Renee Fleming sang ÂDanny BoyÂŽ at the request of the music-loving late senator. During the performance, Mrs. McCain shut her eyes and put her hand over her mouth. She then rested her head on the shoulder of her son Jack. Tears streamed down her face, which she wiped away as Fleming Â“nished.ALMANACToday is Sunday, Sept. 2, the 245th day of 2018.

NEW YORK TIMES SUNDAY CROSSWORDFOR ANSWERS TURN TO PAGE 2No. 0826 Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to 1993, when two Circuit City executives formed me to diversify the companyÂs operations. I was envisioned as a company with a massive inventory of cars offered at a then-revolutionary Âno-hagglingÂŽ price. I was spun off from Circuit City in 2002. Today, based in Richmond, Virginia, IÂm AmericaÂs biggest used-car retailer, with more than 190 stores in 41 states. I employ 25,000-plus people. My annual revenue tops $17 billion. In my most recent fiscal year, I sold more than 700,000 used vehicles as well as more than 400,000 wholesale vehicles at in-store auctions. Who am I?Think you know the answer? WeÂll announce it in next weekÂs edition. Â€ If the stock seems significantly overvalued. Consider the tax consequences, though. If you expect it to keep growing over the long run, hanging on can be best. Â€ If you find a much more attractive investment. If your calculations suggest that a holding is now fairly valued and stock in another great company appears to be very undervalued, you could gain more in the other stock. (Again, consider tax effects, though.) Â€ If there are red flags such as shrinking profit margins or steep debt. Short-term problems can be OK, but look out for long-term ones. Â€ If youÂll need that money within five (or even 10) years, it should be in a less volatile place than stocks. Consider a money market account or a CD. Â€ If youÂre only hanging on for emotional reasons. Focusing only on whether to buy a certain stock and not giving much thought to when you should sell it is a costly blunder. If you leave your dollars in a poor investment, they canÂt grow for you in a great one.The Motley Fool TakeApple AppealApple (Nasdaq: AAPL) recently reported its third-quarter results, in which revenue popped 17 percent year over year (marking four consecutive quarters of double-digit year-over-year growth) and earnings soared 40 percent higher. Apple has been financially dependent on its iPhone, but it is wisely expanding its revenue in other areas. Its Services segment (which includes Apple Music, the App Store and Apple Pay) is a rising star, with its revenue up by 31 percent in the most recent quarter to $9.5 billion, representing 18 percent of the companyÂs top line. Clearly, Apple not only knows how to sell devices to its customers, but it can also convince them to spend more money in the companyÂs ecosystem through its ever-increasing menu of services. The companyÂs dividend yield was recently at 1.4 percent, and dividend investors should consider that Apple has a very low payout ratio of about 24 percent, meaning that the company has plenty of room to increase that payout. Apple is committed to its shareholders, having announced a $100 billion share repurchase program in the second quarter of 2018. Whether youÂre looking for a company with earnings, cash on the balance sheet or a wide competitive moat, Apple fits the bill. (The Motley Fool has recommended Apple and owns shares of it as well as the following options on it: long January 2020 $150 calls and short January 2020 $155 calls.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentShort-Term BluesI bought shares of Novo Nordisk for around $44.50 per share, and now, about a week later, shares have fallen below $41. From my reading, I gather that they may continue to drop and not recover for years. Should I sell and take a big loss or hold on? Â„ R.W., online The Fool Responds: YouÂre being very impatient. Stocks move up and down throughout each day and week and year. Over the long run, the stocks of healthy and growing companies should increase in value, making shareholders wealthier. But even great companiesÂ stocks have languished for months or even years Â„ and terrific investments can fall in value for a while, too. A week is way too short a time in which to expect to reap a profit. Many fortunes have been made by investing in great companies and then hanging onto the shares for many years Â„ as long as the companies remained strong and with bright futures. If you donÂt have the confidence to remain invested in individual companies, consider just socking money away in a low-fee broad-market index fund, such as one that tracks the S&P 500. Novo Nordisk was recently trading around $47.50 per share. ItÂs facing pricing pressures for its diabetes drugs and investor opinions about it are mixed. Its future has promise, though, and The Motley Fool has recommended it. Just Divide by 0.14748071991788QThe Dow was recently at 25,600. What, exactly, does that number represent? Â„ M.M., Decatur, IllinoisAÂThe DowÂŽ refers to the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), a U.S. stock market index established in 1896. ItÂs an average of the stock prices of 30 companies that include Apple, Boeing, CocaCola, The Home Depot, McDonaldÂs, Nike, Procter & Gamble, Walmart and Visa. It doesnÂt look like an average, though, when itÂs 25,600 and many of the stocks sport prices below $100.It makes sense, though, because the shares, on average, actually would trade at lofty levels Â„ if they had never been split, issued dividends or undergone major changes such as spin-offs or mergers during their time in the index. Therefore, in order to account for all those changes, the stock prices of the 30 component stocks are added together and then divided by the ÂdivisorÂŽ (which is adjusted frequently and was recently 0.14748071991788). To understand how each stock affects the average, know that if, say, Visa stock rises by $10, you can just divide 10 by the divisor and learn that the DJIA will rise by about 67.81 points (10 divided by 0.14748071991788 equals 67.805).***QWhat are Âorphan drugsÂŽ in the pharmaceutical world? Â„ T.B., Hattiesburg, MississippiAThe U.S. Food & Drug Administration has an Orphan Drug Designation program, offering incentives for companies to develop drugs to treat, diagnose or prevent Ârare diseases/disorders that affect fewer than 200,000 people in the U.S., or that affect more than 200,000 persons but are not expected to recover the costs of developing and marketing a treatment drug.ÂŽ Since many of these drugs end up with steep prices, they can make a lot of money for biotech and pharmaceutical companies.Want more information about stocks?

Many sell their stocks when the market suddenly heads south, too. Those can be costly mistakes, though. DonÂt sell just because a stock or the market is falling, or youÂve heard some rumors, or someone tells you to sell. Here are good reasons to consider selling: Â€ If you canÂt remember why you bought the stock. Â€ If you canÂt explain exactly how the company makes money. Â€ If you hold too many or too few stocks. Portfolios should be diversified, but not too diversified. Aiming for around eight to 15 companies is good for most people. Â€ If the reason you bought shares is no longer valid. For example, maybe the company is suddenly facing strong competition. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: May I say something about people who call ÂfriendsÂŽ or others they havenÂt talked to recently while theyÂre driving to an appointment or other errand, only to abruptly end the conversation when the destination is reached? Two people have done this to me recently. One was an old friend I hadnÂt seen in 13 years. As soon as the destination was reached, I heard an abrupt, ÂWell, IÂm here ... talk to ya later!ÂŽ Click! I think itÂs incredibly rude. ItÂs as if the recipient of the call is merely an afterthought to alleviate boredom while driving. No matter what the recipient feels or wants to say, the conversation is ended. To be clear: I do not have a reputation of talking too much or extending phone conversations. Talkativeness on my part was not a reason for this behavior. I feel if someone wants to talk to me and respects me as an individual, the conversation should be a MUTUAL interaction Â„ not something crammed into the callerÂs schedule. IÂd rather the person not call than treat me like a second-class citizen. Â„ DEAR WANTING: My mother used to complain to me about the same thing when another relative did it with her. (ÂIÂm home now, gotta go!ÂŽ) I donÂt think people who do this mean to be rude; they may simply be overscheduled. However, I agree that itÂs insensitive and, because it bothered you, I hope you made your feelings known. IÂm glad you wrote because it happens often, I suspect, and not just to you. DEAR ABBY: Life hasnÂt been easy for me. I taught in inner-city schools for 35 years and lost three life partners who were addicted to alcohol and drugs before they died of AIDS. Out of necessity, I had to carry on with my professional life while struggling with my unfortunate personal life. IÂm happily retired now and living a wonderful life in Palm Springs, California. But sometimes I nd myself starting to dwell on unhappy memories from my past. When it happens, I have found an eective coping method. It came from a simple mantra a former student of mine posted online: ÂThereÂs a reason the rearview mirror is so small and the windshield is so large. ItÂs because where youÂre headed is much more important than where youÂve been.ÂŽ Now, when a sad memory comes to mind, I say to myself, Âbig windshield; small rearview mirror,ÂŽ let go of the unwanted thought and move on. This has been benecial for my well-being, and I hope it will be for others. Â„ DESERT JACK DEAR JACK: IÂm glad you shared this. Clinging to loss and sadness isnÂt healthy for anyone. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to keep the past behind us rather than let it clutter up our present. Thank you for sharing your coping method. I, too, hope it will help readers.

There are specic disposal recommendations for all of the dierent types of batteries we use today. States have regulations about handling this. You can call your local trash company or city recycling center for detailed information about what to do, but briey here is how to get rid of batteries safely: Â„Single-use alkaline batteries can be tossed into the trash, but if you are going to a recycling center, include them. Â„Rechargeable lithium ion batteries always should be recycled. Do not put them into your household garbage. These are used in smartphones, computers, power tools and digital cameras.

Page 8 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 ÂThey are undermining the moderate forces in Palestine and Israel,ÂŽ he added. ÂThose elements that want to achieve peace peacefully based on a two-state solution are being destroyed.ÂŽ He said extremists across the region had been given Âgifts.ÂŽ UNRWA was established after the war surrounding IsraelÂs establishment in 1948 to aid the 700,000 Palestinians who Â”ed or were forced from their homes. Today, it provides education, health care and social services to some 5 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as well as Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. The agency is also a major employer in the Palestinian areas. The U.S. in recent years has supplied nearly 30 percent of UNRWAÂs budget. But early this year, it suspended roughly $300 million in planned assistance, pending a review. FridayÂs decision formally cut that money, as well as future assistance to the agency. In a statement, the U.S. called the agency an Âirredeemably Â”awed operation.ÂŽ It said the U.S. was no longer willing to pay for a Âvery disproportionate shareÂŽ of UNRWAÂs costs and criticized what it called the agencyÂs Âfundamental business model and Â“scal practicesÂŽ and its Âendlessly and exponentially expanding community of entitled beneÂ“ciaries.ÂŽ The statement largely echoed Israeli claims that UNRWA perpetuates the conÂ”ict by promoting an unrealistic Palestinian demand that refugees have the Âright of returnÂŽ to long-lost homes in what is now Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said UNRWA should be abolished and its responsibilities taken over by the main U.N. refugee agency. In Lebanon on Friday, the U.N. refugee agencyÂs commissioner, Filipo Grandi, ruled out taking on the Palestinian refugee issue. ÂNo! The Palestinians in the region are the responsibility of UNRWA,ÂŽ he said. UNRWAÂs spokesman, Chris Gunness, said the agency expressed Âdeep regret and disappointmentÂŽ with the U.S. decision. He rejected Âin the strongest possible termsÂŽ the U.S. accusations that its operations are Â”awed. The European Union, the largest contributor to UNRWA with its member states, urged the U.S. to reconsider its Âregrettable decision.ÂŽ It said it would continue its assistance to the agency and discuss funding alternatives with other partners. The U.S. budget cuts have already hit UNRWA hard. In an interview with The Associated Press last month, UNRWAÂs commissioner, Pierre Kraehenbuehl, said his agency only had enough money to operate its hundreds of schools through the end of September. He said he is planning a major fundraising campaign to keep operations aÂ”oat. He also rejected Israeli arguments that UNRWA perpetuates the Israeli-Palestinian conÂ”ict. He said his agency operates under a mandate approved by the U.N. General Assembly and that the refugee issue must be resolved as part of a broader solution to the overall conÂ”ict. Some in Israel have leveled even tougher criticism, accusing UNRWA of teaching hatred of Israel in its classrooms and tolerating or assisting Hamas, the militant Islamic group that rules Gaza. Kraehenbuehl rejected the accusations, saying his agency is a source of moderation and has condemned attempts by militants to use his facilities for cover. The Palestinian Authority, led by President Mahmoud Abbas, seeks the establishment of an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem Â„ areas captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005 and Hamas, after winning legislative elections, forcibly seized control of the territory from Abbas two years later. Trump has broken from a string of predecessors and is no longer demanding the establishment of a Palestinian state as part of a peace agreement. Netanyahu, who brieÂ”y endorsed the two-state solution during the Obama administration, no longer mentions the idea as a way of resolving the conÂ”ict. The Palestinian Authority, citing what it says is a pro-Israeli bias, broke off contact with the U.S. after the Jerusalem announcement and has said it will not accept the administrationÂs upcoming peace proposal. Trump already has said his recognition of Jerusalem was meant to remove the issue from the negotiating table. The Palestinians now fear the U.S. is putting pressure on host countries like Lebanon, Jordan and Syria to absorb their refugee populations and eliminate that issue from future peace negotiations. AbbasÂ spokesman, Nabil Abu Rdeneh, said the U.S. decision Âdoes not serve peace but rather strengthens terrorism in the regionÂŽ and urged the U.N. to take a ÂÂ“rm standÂŽ against the Americans. In Gaza, Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem accused the United States of going after UNRWA to eliminate the Palestinian right to return to their future homes. ÂItÂs clear that Trump has shifted from taking sides with the Israeli enemy to being a partner in the assault on our Palestinian peoplesÂ rights,ÂŽ he said. ÂAll these decisions will not stop our peopleÂs struggle to gain freedom and return.ÂŽFUNDINGFROM PAGE 1 closed-door hearing with an investigating judge on Monday. Dutch ofÂ“cials did not disclose the charges he could face. A statement issued late Friday by AmsterdamÂs city council said the Americans did not appear to have been victims of a targeted attack. Amsterdam authorities also said Friday that it appeared from initial inquiries that the victims werenÂt chosen for a clear reason. The local government said Saturday it had no immediate plans to beef up security in the city, saying the swift action by police Âshows that Amsterdam is prepared for this kind of incident.ÂŽ A passerbyÂs dramatic photo showed two police ofÂ“cers pointing guns at a man in blue jeans and sneakers lying on the ground inside a train station tunnel. Earlier Saturday, the U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands conÂ“rmed that the two people injured Friday were Americans visiting the Netherlands when they were stabbed at the station. Ambassador Pete Hoekstra issued a written statement saying U.S. Embassy ofÂ“cials had been in touch with the victims or their families. ÂWe wish them a speedy recovery and are working closely with the City of Amsterdam to provide assistance to them and their families,ÂŽ Hoekstra said. Central Station is a busy entry and exit point for visitors to Amsterdam, with regular trains linking it to the cityÂs Schiphol Airport. Friday is one of the busiest days of the week for train travel as tourists arrive for the weekend. The station is patrolled by armed police and other security staff.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTODutch police ocers point their guns at a wounded 19-year-old man who was shot by police after stabbing two people in the central railway station in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Friday.FROM PAGE ONEadno=3600093 TOURING-L MODEL, NAVIGATION, ONE OWNER, 30,100 MILES2015 CHRYSLER TN & CTRY $21,518 46,400 MILES, LT MODEL, STONE COLD 10, ONE OWNER, CLEAN2015 CHEVROLET EQUINOX $15,918 EXTRA CAB SR MODEL, ONE OWNER, AUTOMATIC, 26,600 MILES2017 TOYOTA TACOMA $20,018 ONE OWNER, PEARL WHITE, 30,400 MILES, FLAWLESS SUV2015 NISSAN ROGUE SELECT $13,918 4 DOOR PRERUNNER, 4.0L V-6, LOW MILES, LOADED UP SR52008 TOYOTA TACOMA FINAL REDUCTION SE MODEL, ONE OWNER, LOW MILES, LEATHER, SUNROOF, NICE2015 VW PASSAT $13,518 TOURING-L MODEL, NAVIGATION, 8 PASSENGER, 20,800 MILES2017 CHRYSLER PACIFICA $24,587 SHORT BED, AUTOMATIC, LOW MILES, FULLY LOADED, RED HOT2013 FORD F-150 SOLD TUXEDO BLACK, SEL MODEL, NAVIGATION, ONE OWNER SEDAN2015 FORD TAURUS LEATHER LIMITED, LEATHER, NAVIGATION, 22,800, SUNROOF, WARRANTY2015 JEEP GR CHEROKEE BLACK BEAUTY S MODEL, WHITE PEARL, 31,500 MILES, ONE OWNER, FLAWLESS2015 NISSAN ALTIMA $14,818 4X4, SPORT S PACKAGE, NEW TIRES, AUTOMATIC, READY TO ROLL2014 JEEP WRANGLER OFF ROADFREE REPORT WITH EVERY PURCHASE! adno=3600093 $20,018 $20,018 $13,518 $13,518 LEATHER LEATHER OFF ROA D D D D D D OFF ROA D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D All Vehicle Prices Clearly Marked...

www.highlandsnewssun.com September 2, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C3HereÂs your fall home to-do listBy DESIGN RECIPESCathy HobbsThe fall is a time of transition in many ways. When it comes to your home, you are going to want to make sure all is in order as temperatures begin to drop and winter settles in. What should you do to prepare? Here are some maintenance items to keep in mind. 1. Check your roof. Your roof helps protect your home in many ways. Be sure to make sure there are no signs of leaks. 2. Pave your driveway and other hard surfaces such as sidewalks or pathways. They tend to take a bruising during harsh weather. 3. Mulch. Landscapes need protection from the elements, and mulch is a great protector. 4. Pack up. Now is the time to pack away outdoor furniture and put it away for the season. 5. Prune and trim. Fall is an ideal time to trim shrubs and bushes to prepare for their return come spring. 6. Clean your gutters. Gutters should remain clear and in good condition to help ensure they work properly. 7. Check windows and doors. Windows and doors need to be properly sealed. 8. Purchase a storm door. Storm doors can serve as key elements to protect your home from harsh weather. 9. Consider buying a generator. Standby generators can be costly but may be worth the investment. In the case of an emergency, a portable generator may do the trick. 10. Make repairs. From broken railings and siding boards to knobs and hinges, this is a great time of year to make needed repairs.

C4 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 2, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com DonÂt forget sconces in your lighting planBy KIM COOKThe Associated PressLighting a room seems simple: Plug in a lamp or Â”ip a switch. Not so fast. ÂNothing enhances a space more than a thoughtful lighting plan,ÂŽ says interior designer Michael Wood of New York City. Many buildings in the city donÂt allow channeling into the ceiling to add lighting, so as a workaround, he often uses sconces. ÂThe right sconce at the right location, inside or out, can act as much as a statement or art object as a light Â“xture,ÂŽ he says. ÂThereÂs an opportunity to personalize and add richness to a space.ÂŽ There are practical considerations, as well. ÂSconces free up space on night tables, or reduce clutter in a room with too many Â”oor lamps,ÂŽ says Wood. ÂFor smaller spaces in particular, the less on the Â”oor the better.ÂŽ Donna Garlough, style director for Joss & Main, has noticed growing interest in sconces in the past few years. ÂItÂs not that theyÂre new, but spaces featuring sconces have become extra-popular on Pinterest and Instagram lately, where a lot of DIY decorators get their ideas,ÂŽ she says. ÂLighting manufacturers have responded with stylish options for every budget.ÂŽ The right sconce can create a welcoming glow, and accentuate furniture and architecture, Garlough says. ÂUsed to frame furnishings like beds and sofas, sconces can give your room a high-end, custom feel, and they make furniture look like it really belongs in the space,ÂŽ she says. Popular locations for sconces include the master bedroom, where they create a hotel-chic vibe, next to bathroom mirrors, around kitchen cabinetry or in hallways. Outdoors, a sconce provides great mood lighting on a wall or fence. Wood likes sconces with an articulating arm. ÂIt frees the light from a single illumination point, in a similar fashion to a task lamp,ÂŽ he says. There are also versions that reach some distance from the wall, illuminating corners that other lighting canÂt. ÂBrass and oiled bronze sconces are especially popular, as are midcentury-style globe sconces,ÂŽ says Garlough. At Joss & Main, the Gulvason articulating sconce comes in several metallic Â“nishes, including brass and polished nickel; it can be installed or plugged in, which is handy if you arenÂt able to hard-wire anything. The Sabinal perches a little black shade on a resin post shaped liked a tree branch, clad in gold metallic for a mix of rusticity and elegance. And, available in both a swing-arm and Â“xed arm version, the BautistaÂs round opal glass shade casts a warm glow. Wood praises Los Angeles designer Brendan RavenhillÂs new ADA sconce, which debuted during design week this spring at the ICFF in New York. ÂI was impressed with the Â”exibility Â„ it can mount vertically or horizontally Â„ and the Â“nish and size options,ÂŽ he says. ÂIt would work with contemporary, industrial or classic decor.ÂŽ At Pottery Barn the Adeline sconce brings sparkle to a space with a faceted crystalline glass shade. Translucent milk glass and a riveted bronze, nickel or brass frame give the PB Classic sconce retro charm. And for a sophisticated bathroom, consider the Sussex tube sconce, with a frosted glass shade mounted on a polished nickel base with Art Deco-era elan. Finally, from West Elm, thereÂs a lovely adjustable sconce that plugs in. It comes in both longand short-armed versions, with one or two shades. Brass and a curvilinear black shade give it a cool mid-mod vibe. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated photo provided by Brendan Ravenhill Studio shows RavenhillÂs Ada sconce. Ada is inspired by a Charlotte Perriand design, one of RavenhillÂs favorites, and its name reects a unique feature of the xture: it complies with the American Disabilities Act guidelines that say sconce lighting shouldnÂt protrude more than 4 inches from a wall. The xture can be mounted horizontally or vertically, indoors or out. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated photo shows Joss & MainÂs Bautista sconce, which pairs a luminous opal glass globe with a warm brass nish for a sophisticated wall lamp with a midcentury vibe.

How to fix the festering sore of daily interest mortgagesA major purpose of the Dodd/Frank bill enacted after the Â“nancial crisis was to create a new consumer protection agency, which would have as one of its major goals an improved system of mandatory disclosures to mortgage borrowers. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is now in its eighth year and has yet to recognize, let alone Â“x, an insidious practice by some mortgage lenders of charging interest daily instead of monthly and not disclosing this in any way that a borrower would understand. In a recent article on this subject, I pointed out that borrowers who had daily interest mortgages but didnÂt realize it can easily Â“nd that their loan payoff date keeps moving further and further away. Neither the CFPBÂs new Loan Estimate disclosure, designed for shoppers, or its Closing Disclosure for borrowers, reveal whether interest is calculated daily or monthly. That article also indicated that, at some point, I would indicate how this festering sore of the mortgage system could be Â“xed. That is the purpose of this article. On new loans, both the disclosures referred to above should indicate whether the loan accrues interest daily or monthly. If it is daily, the disclosure should include the daily rate, an illustration of how it is calculated, an explanation of how the monthly payment is allocated between interest and principal, and an explanation of the interest deÂ“cit account. In addition, both disclosures should have a table that shows when the daily rate loan will be paid off if the borrower consistently pays 1, 3, and 5 days late, and 1, 3, and 5 days early. It is possible that these disclosure requirements will mean that no more daily interest mortgages will be written. If the only rationale for these mortgages was that they allowed borrowers to be hoodwinked, that is what we would expect to happen. However, some borrowers can make good use of daily interest mortgages and would select them if given the choice. This is why the preferred remedy for abuse is disclosure rather than prohibition. Existing daily interest mortgages present a very different problem because the damage already done canÂt be undone. However, further damage can be limited by mandated changes in servicing system disclosures. The core requirement should be that the daily interest accrual feature should be obvious rather than obfuscated. Showing total interest for the month without any indication of how it is calculated is obfuscation and should not be permitted. Since the prospects are not bright for a public policy Â“x anytime soon, existing borrowers with daily interest mortgages are on their own. To help them, I have a daily interest spreadsheet on my web site Â„ it is called Monitoring Amortization of a Simple Interest Loan. Visit mtgprofessor.com. Borrowers can use it to reproduce the day-to-day history of their mortgage, or they can proceed as if the loan is a new one by using the most recent balance as the loan amount. If they elect that option, the payment amount would remain as it was. In entering future payments, users must take care to enter them on the day they are posted by the lender, not the day they were sent.

Comments and questions can be left at mtgprofessor.com.MORTGAGE PROFESSORJack Guttentag Averaged 30-year mortgage rate inches upBy JOSH BOAKThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Long-term U.S. mortgage rates ticked up this week as borrowing costs are meaningfully higher than a year ago. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate on 30year, Â“xed-rate mortgages rose slightly to 4.52 percent from 4.51 percent last week. The rate averaged 3.82 percent a year ago. Average rates began to climb after the tax cuts signed into law last year by President Donald Trump increased the federal budget deÂ“cit, as home loans generally move in sync with interest on 10-year Treasury notes. The average rate on 15-year, Â“xed-rate loans fell to 3.97 percent this week from 3.98 percent last week. Because of rising home prices and borrowing costs, affordability has become a challenge for many would-be homebuyers and depressed sales of existing homes for the past four months. An analysis released Thursday by realtor.com found that the monthly costs of owning a home have climbed 14 percent in the past year. As a result, the median monthly cost to buy a home was $1,647, almost $400 more than the average monthly cost to rent a home. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Aug. 21, a home has sold in North Reading, Mass. On Thursday, Aug. 30, Freddie Mac reports on the weekÂs average U.S. mortgage rates.US pending home sales fell in JulyBy JOSH BOAKThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Fewer Americans signed contracts in July to buy homes compared to the previous month, as real estate sales are slipping even though economic growth is solid. The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday that its pending home sales index fell 0.7 percent last month to 106.2. During the past year, contract signings have tumbled 2.3 percent as home values have climbed at roughly double the pace of average wage growth. Home sales have stumbled in recent months despite the robust job market. Affordability has become a challenge as there are few entry-level homes priced below $250,000 being listed for sale and mortgage rates have jumped over the past year. Pending sales in July fell in the West and South, but they rose in the Northeast and Midwest. Sales in all four geographic regions have declined over the past year, with the sharpest drop in the West where homes are generally more expensive. Pending sales are a barometer of home purchases that are completed a month or two later. The Realtors said last week that sales of existing homes have declined for the past four months. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Aug. 21 photo, a home is under agreement in Stoneham, Mass. On Wednesday, Aug. 29, the National Association of Realtors releases its July report on pending home sales, which are seen as a barometer of future purchases.US home prices jumped 6.3 percent from a year agoBy JOSH BOAKThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ U.S home prices climbed 6.3 percent in June from a year earlier, as affordability is becoming a greater obstacle for would-be buyers. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city home price index rose at a slightly slower pace than the 6.5 percent annual gain in May from a year earlier, according to a report Tuesday. But home values are increasing at more than double the pace of average wage growth, weighing down property sales despite solid demand because of accelerating economic growth and solid hiring. Mortgage rates are also higher than a year ago, creating another price pressure for would-be buyers. The National Association of Realtors said that sales of existing homes have declined for the past four months. Despite the sales slowdown, inventories remain tight and that has meant that buyers Â„ especially those searching for homes worth less than $250,000 Â„ have scant options. ÂSellers, for now and for the foreseeable future, are still in control in this market,ÂŽ said Aaron Terrazas, a senior economist at the real estate company Zillow. Home prices in three metro areas have increased by double digits in the past year: Las Vegas (13 percent), Seattle (12.8 percent) and San Francisco (10.7 percent). The smallest annual growth in prices was in Washington, D.C. (2.9 percent), Chicago (3.3 percent) and New York City (3.8 percent). THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 8 le photo a for sale sign stands in front of a house, in Jenkintown, Pa. On Tuesday, Aug. 28, the Standard & PoorÂs/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index for June is released.

www.highlandsnewssun.com September 2, 2018 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | C7Fall decor forecast: stylish, functional, comfortableBy KIM COOKThe Associated PressUnfettered from dated conventions that urged us to pick a decor style and stick to it, more and more designers and retailers this fall are blending decorative elements and playing more loosely with the color wheel. In some cases, the result is a polished, edited space that still has compelling aspects Â„ unexpected material, furniture or color choices. In others, the Â“nished room is a study in eclectic exuberance, with singular and often witty hues and style components. And thereÂs one piece in this design puzzle that Â“ts no matter what the style. ÂThis fall, weÂre seeing a shift toward comfort and functionality,ÂŽ says designer Charlotte Dunagan of Coral Gables, Florida. ÂClients are looking for beautiful spaces that are also livable and inviting Â„ not only aesthetically captivating, but also extremely comfortable.ÂŽ Stephanie Sarkies, design director of Pembrooke & Ives in New York City, concurs. The cozy ÂhyggeÂŽ factor now popular in homes is also reaching hotels and restaurants. ÂIn the hospitality sector, thereÂs a big shift toward mental and physical wellness Â„ the idea of interior spaces enabling mindfulness and togetherness,ÂŽ she says. John Cialone of ChicagoÂs Tom Stringer Design Partners says clients are savvy to big-picture concerns like energy efÂ“ciency and sustainability, but also want designs to address simple things like getting a better nightÂs sleep or improving air circulation through good furniture placement.A nice feelÂLush fabrics like velvet and mohair, luxurious armchairs covered in shearling and boucle, and faux fur or cashmere area rugs are some of the trends popping up in design showrooms worldwide,ÂŽ says Dunagan. ÂThe aim is to create a curated space with purpose. Interiors are shifting away from stark white, museum-like spaces and incorporating a cozy, sexy feeling. Think herringbone and patchwork, earthy shades and organic shapes.ÂŽStyle and patternArt Deco has gained ground over the past couple of seasons, and weÂre seeing pieces across more affordable price ranges. ThereÂs channel upholstery, Chanel-style quilting, curvy proÂ“les, polished metals, and color combinations like glossy black with white, rich red or soft makeup-y hues. New pieces for PB Teen include a channel tufted daybed and a glam ceiling Â“xture swathed in Â“ne chain. At CB2, Â“nd champagne-hued velvet barstools, a shapely velvet sofa and faux-shagreen casegoods. West ElmÂs got Rosanna CeravoloÂs linear, carved media console, in a crisp citron hue. ThereÂs a popular transitional look that never gets too far away; call it Manor House, or, as Pottery Barn is terming it this fall, ÂChateau.ÂŽ The retailerÂs launching a collection inÂ”uenced by European architecture and materials. Wroughtiron and wood furniture in tones of charcoal or dove are paired with easy, weathered-look textiles like jacquard pillows and linen upholstery. Newton Paisley has a wallpaper collection based on the Carolinas, with indigenous birds, butterÂ”ies and Â”ora depicted in colorful patterns. Global maximalism is still riding high, with embroidery, silks, chunky weaves, carved woods and hammered metals from South and Central America, India, Asia and Africa. ÂThere seems to be a trend away from slavish midcentury modern toward a softer, plusher, more hand-wrought modernist aesthetic,ÂŽ observes Raun Thorp of Tichenor & Thorp Architects in Los Angeles. ItÂs a blending of the romantic and the machined that she terms Âcrafted modern.ÂŽ For decor with an industrial yet reÂ“ned look, see the Â“nely knurled hardware collections from Buster & Punch or Jonathan BrowningÂs for Restoration Hardware and Ian K. FowlerÂs Utilitaire lighting, also for RH. The newest minimalist looks with a Japanese or Scandinavian vibe feature lots of texture and pattern. Crate & BarrelÂs Nagano and Kiyomi bedding collections incorporate overstitching or wafÂ”e weaving. Ikat textiles inspired a line of organic quilted cotton blankets and pillows at West Elm. And there are new handcrafted ceramics at these stores, too. Abstracts and geometrics, often with a nod to the Â70s, Â80s or Â90s, bring modernity and energy into a space. ThereÂs contemporary art galore now to grace walls, very affordably. But practice restraint: Trend-watchers say the ubiquitous gallery wall may have reached its peak, and simpler displays Â„ open shelving, for example Â„ are poised to trend up. Wallpaper and tile are a quick, impactful way to bring these patterns home. Consider ColliÂs kicky, masculine Mike tile collection. New Ravenna has Cean ImmingerÂs playful new Subway pattern, with stylized subway cars rendered in ceramic.ColorYellows both mellow (like mustard) and bright (like citron) are cropping up all over the fall collections. Recent design shows in New York also featured a lot of green. ÂI Â“nd myself building rooms with hunter green as my foundation layer, and working chartreuse, moss, olive and even kelly green into the mix,ÂŽ says California designer Alison Pickart. ÂGreen can be a foundational neutral. Pair it with anything, youÂll see it works.ÂŽ PPG Paints picked Nightwatch, a deep luxurious green, as their 2019 Color of the Year. At CB2, thereÂs the new Hoxton leather sofa in olive green and, in collaboration with Brooklyn menswear design shop Hill-Side, a rug with a deconstructed Â”oral pattern in a forest-y palette. Nicole Alexander of Chicago-based Siren Betty Design is working with dark blues. ÂThese deep, soothing tones invoke a calm feeling, while still maintaining a presence,ÂŽ she says. Look for more of those mineral blues, blue-blacks and navy. Alexander is also into another trending, Â70s-era hue: Âorganic and warmÂŽ terracotta. For complementary palettes, check out DunnEdwardsÂ Sojourn collection of dense, spicy hues, and Sherwin-WilliamsÂ Distance, Moth Wing and Dark Clove. For those seeking bold color, Pantone is predicting that plummy purples, burgundy reds and sweet oranges will be ones to watch. Fall dcor is full of Â”avors for everyone. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated photo shows Crate & BarrelÂs Nagano collection, which features lightweight cotton and linen voile bedding in an interesting textural navy and white stitched pattern. Referencing early 20th century Japanese folk art as well as Scandinavian sensibilities, itÂs part of a growing trend toward mixing not only materials, but eras, to create contemporary looks. adno=3595140 adno=3588691 Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-381-0400 Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-381-0400 Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-3 81-0400 Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-381-0400 Â€Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-381-0400 Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-381-0400 Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-3 81-0400 Â€ TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-381-0400 Â€TO BUY OR SELL CALL TEAM DELL 863-381-0400 O BUY OR SE L L L L CA L L L TEA Pam Cooper 863-414-4970 Buyers Specialist Dawn Dell 863-381-0400 Team Leader Brittany Gaudino 863-777-4557 Buyers Specialist Homesforsaleinsebring.com HIRE A PROVEN PROFESSIONAL WITH OVER $7 MILLION IN CLOSINGS IN 2018 CALL FOR YOUR FREE MARKET ANALYSIS 863.381.0400 LAKE JACKSON Incredible deal!

C8 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 2, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com How to stay on budget during remodeling projectBy DAN DICLERICOHomeAdvisor.comItÂs one of the unwritten rules of remodeling that a project will always cost more and take longer than expected. But just because this is the norm, you donÂt have to take it as a given. With the right combination of planning, discipline and smart shopping, your renovation can end on budget and ahead of schedule. HereÂs how to get there: Build a cushion. Hidden surprises, including structural damage behind walls and outdated electrical, are the biggest remodeling budget busters. Building a 10 to 15 percent cushion into your initial budget will help cover these unforeseens. Involving your contractor early in the process also helps set a realistic budget. While they canÂt see through walls, they might be able to do a pre-inspection of the house to spot potential problem areas. A spongy bathroom Â”oor, for example, is a sure sign of water damage. Getting your contractor on board early will also stop you from falling in love with a design thatÂs way beyond your budget. Negotiate upfront. Most contractors are willing to haggle over the price of the job. ThatÂs especially true if they know youÂll turn into a repeat customer, so if you have additional projects in mind, be sure to share that information upfront. Getting bids from multiple contractors will increase your bargaining power. You should also check HomeAdvisorÂs True Cost Guide to get a handle on the current market rate for a given project. As with any deal-making, the more information you have, the stronger your position will be. Stick to the plan. ItÂs often said that the four most expensive words in home remodeling are Âwhile weÂre at it.ÂŽ If youÂre intent on sticking to the budget, you must resist the urge to change the design plan after the work is underway. The more detailed the design, the easier this will be. Avoid a lot of ÂallowancesÂŽ in the written contract, basically blank spaces that your contractor will Â“ll out later, say for light Â“xtures or Â”ooring materials. ItÂs easy to underestimate how much these items will cost. Do some of the work yourself. DIY can help control project costs. Just be sure to make it part of the initial negotiations with your contractor. Low-impact prep work is ideal, say tearing up carpets or taking away old cabinets. Unless youÂre an experienced DIYer, think twice about taking a sledgehammer to walls. The work is messy and backbreaking, plus you run the risk of damaging load-bearing walls or buried plumbing and electrical lines. At the back end of the project, Â“nish painting is a great project to tackle yourself. Doing so could shave a few percentage points off the total budget. Go bargain hunting. Salvage yards and second-hand stores can be great sources for inexpensive remodeling wares, from Â“replace surrounds to bathroom vanities. There are even retailers that sell entire kitchen sets (cabinets, countertops, appliances and more) that have been carefully removed from high-end residences. On a major project, like a gut kitchen renovation, the measure could save you tens of thousands of dollars. But making used materials Â“t your space will present design and installation challenges, so itÂs important to work with an architect and contractor with the right skill set and experience.

Trailing 16-15 after missing a two-point conversion on their opening drive of the game, Auburn drove 76 yards in 10 plays for the winning score. Jarrett Stidham kept the drive going early with a 12-yard pass to Chandler Cox on third-and-9. Then, facing third-and-7 deep in Washington territory, Auburn handed off inside to Whitlow, who knocked over a Washington defender as he smashed into the end zone. Washington drove to the Auburn 37 with plenty of time to pull off the comeback, but Myles Gaskin was thrown for a 3-yard loss and Jake Browning was stymied by a Â“erce pass rush on back-to-back plays to preserve the TigersÂ victory. Stidham was 26 of 36 for 273 yards for Auburn, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Sal Cannella, who made a leaping grab in the end zone before landing Â”at on his back. Browning, looking to bounce back from a disappointing junior season, completed 18 of 32 for 296 yards. He was picked off once but connected with Quinten Pounds on a 13yard touchdown in the Â“nal minute of the Â“rst half Peyton Henry put the Huskies ahead for the Â“rst time with his third Â“eld goal, a 30-yarder that clanked off the right upright but ricocheted through with 14:06 remaining. Both teams squandered scoring chances. Anders Carlson, taking over from older brother Daniel as AuburnÂs kicker, connected on three Â“eld goals Â„ including a 53-yarder Â„ but also missed from 33 and 54 yards. Washington was kicking itself after coming away from a Â“rst-and-goal with no points. On third down at the 3, Browning rolled right looking to make a pitch only to be smacked by Nick Poe. The ball squirted free and AuburnÂs Darrell Williams fell on it at the 20. Another chance was wasted when Henry shanked a 40-yard Â“eld goal attempt.The TakeawayWashington: Aaron Fuller addressed what was perhaps the biggest question mark on the Huskies roster, showing he had all the makings of a No. 1 receiver with seven catches for 135 yards. But Washington will have to overcome an early blemish on its record to get into the playoff mix. Auburn: The Tigers picked up a win that should come in very handy if theyÂre in postseason contention late in the season. The victory really felt good for a team that closed last season with two straight losses at MercedesBenz Stadium, falling to Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship game and to Central Florida in the Peach Bowl.Up NextWashington: The Huskies return to Seattle to host FCS opponent North Dakota, which opened its season with a 35-7 victory over Mississippi Valley State. Auburn: The Tigers also face an FCS school, Alabama State, in their home opener at JordanHare Stadium. It will be the first game between the schools, even though they are only about 50 miles apart. Auburn is wrapping up its commitment to play every in-state FCS school over a six-year period, having already faced Alabama A&M, Jacksonville State and Samford.By MATT BAKERTAMPA BAY TIMESThis offense could be entertaining. As promised, Mullen used Feleipe FranksÂ mobility through designed runs and impromptu scrambles. The redshirt sophomore rushed five times for 34 yards in the first half; he rushed for more yards only once last season, and almost all of that was from his 79-yard scramble against Texas A&M. FranksÂ arm fit the system, too, with some downfield shots mixed with quick hits to his playmakers in a 16-of24, 219-yard performance. Franks became the first UF quarterback since Rex Grossman in 2000 to throw five touchdowns in the first half. The Gators went the entire Jim McElwain era without recording five passing touchdowns in a game. Mullen probably left a lot of plays uncalled, but he still showed some ingenuity. Franks dumped a shovel pass to tight end Kemore Gamble out of an option play. At the end of the first half, Franks hit Tyrie Cleveland on a jump pass Â… an obvious wink from Mullen to his history with Tim Tebow. If this is a Mullen offense in a blowout, how will it look when he needs to get creative against Mississippi State or LSU? Two transfers are going to be among the GatorsÂ top players. This isnÂt a surprise, given how Trevon Grimes (Ohio State) and Van Jefferson (Ole Miss) looked in spring practice and fall camp. But they made immediate impacts.

Snell (17-5) allowed two runs in 6 2/3 innings, giving up both runs in the second with one being unearned thanks to a throwing error by third baseman Matt Duffy. The left-hander worked around trouble early in the game, but retired nine of the last 10 hitters he faced and struck out the side in the sixth. Snell is tied with New YorkÂs Luis Severino and ClevelandÂs Corey Kluber Â„ two other top candidates for the AL Cy Young Award Â„ for the most wins in the majors. Snell is 5-0 in his last six starts. Tampa Bay scored four times in the sixth off Shane Bieber (8-3). Matt Duffy tied the game with a two-run double. Tommy PhamÂs RBI double put the Rays ahead before Kevin Kiermaier added a run-scoring single. Brandon Lowe homered off the foul pole in right Â“eld to in the ninth. Jason Kipnis, whose playing time will decrease after the Indians acquired third baseman Josh Donaldson from Toronto on Friday, started the ninth with a pinch-hit home run off Chaz Roe. Roe retired the next two hitters and Adam Kolarek got pinch-hitter Yonder Alonso for his second save. DuffyÂs two-base error on Brandon GuyerÂs ground ball started ClevelandÂs rally in the second. Melky Cabrera and Yan Gomes drove in runs with back-to-back doubles. Snell retired the next two hitters before Michael Brantley singled to center. Gomes was waved home, but was an easy out at the plate on KiermaierÂs throw. ClevelandÂs lead quickly disappeared in the sixth. Brandon Lowe singled and took third on Joey WendleÂs double. DuffyÂs double down the right Â“eld line tied the game. PhamÂs one-out double to left-center gave Tampa Bay the lead and Â“nished Bieber. KiermaierÂs single off Tyler Olson scored Pham with the run being charged to Bieber. The rookie right-hander allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings. Donaldson arrived at the ballpark shortly before game-time after having Â”ight issues Saturday that delayed him getting into town. The 2015 AL MVP was given a loud ovation and waved to the crowd when he was shown from the dugout on the scoreboard in the seventh inning. Donaldson has been sidelined for three months by a strained calf and itÂs not clear when heÂll make his Indians debut. Donaldson will play third base with AllStar Jose Ramirez moving to second.TRAINERÂS ROOMRays: Kiermaier was removed the game in the seventh inning because of back spasms.

The Sun | Sunday, September 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3By BEN BAUGHSTAFF WRITERA third place Â“nish last weekend in the Lehigh Lightning Invitational, served as the impetus for another strong performance by the Lady Tarpons cross country team. ÂWeÂre getting an idea of where weÂre right now,ÂŽ said Chris Robishaw. ÂI told them all the day before, and then the day of the race, and the day after. ItÂs a good starting point for everybody to get their feet wet, and literally in the second mile, they were up to their knees in water Everybody took up the challenge. especially the newcomers.ÂŽ The Lady Tarpons placed sixth out of 24 teams in the DDD Sommer Invitational Saturday at Estero. ÂThe course was tough as always and the competition was strong,ÂŽ said Robishaw. ÂEstero, as a coach is one of my favorites. It has to be one of the toughest courses in the state. ItÂs really where we Â“nd out who we are.ÂŽ Alexa Roughton led the Tarpons, Â“nishing 19th with a time of 21:04.01. ÂItÂs all about placement,ÂŽsaid Robishaw.

AREA PREPS: Cross country By BEN BAUGHSTAFF WRITERThe Tarpons placed 21st in a field of 28 teams Saturday at the DDD Sommer Invitational in Estero. Imagine School of North Port placed 28th. Runners found themselves having to traverse a cross country course that featured a uninviting hill, one they would have to run twice, said Chris George, Charlotte Tarpons cross country coach. ÂThatÂs a true cross country, running through water, sugar sand and over hills,ÂŽ said George. The weather this past week wreaked havoc in terms of preparing for this SaturdayÂs race, as the Tarpons had to cancel practices and shorten others, with the roster having to modify and adjust their schedules by running on their own. ÂThe whole goal each week is to chip away at their time and get faster,ÂŽ said George. ÂI told the guys, even though weÂre getting affected by the lightning and rain, and we canÂt practice as a team, that doesnÂt mean that you canÂt train on your own. I know most of the guys have been keeping up with running outside of school. I look forward to seeing that progression.ÂŽ Nick Renaud, 40, Imagine School of North Port, 18:35.7 James Stock, 74, Charlotte, 19:33.2 Jake Lille, 100, Charlotte 19:59.01 James Desguin, 131, Charlotte, 21:01.8 Noah Tatro, 138, Charlotte, 21.23.3 Cohen Fincannon, 170, Imagine School of North Port, 22:30.1 Vincent Havel, 179, Charlotte, 23:06.3 Jacob Terrell, 193, Imagine School of North Port, 24.36.0 Armando Luis, 194, Imagine School of North Port, 24.43.6Tarpons tackle difficult cross country course PHOTO PROVIDED The Charlotte Tarpons boys cross country team placed 21st in the DDD Sommer Invitational Saturday.

Charlotte found themselves posting wins against Carrollwood Day School South Fork. Coach Michelle Dill, made some adjustments, moving a couple of players around and switching up the Tarpons rotation during the first game against Chiles, to see what would work, and by the end of the day, there was a noticeable difference. ÂI liked what I saw,ÂŽ said Dill. ÂItÂs started clicking in the second set of that match.

RUSSOAP COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRITERSOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Â„ Brandon Wimbush connected on a long touchdown pass to help No. 12 Notre Dame jump out to a big Â“rst-half lead, TeÂvon Coney and the defense made it stand with a late takeaway, and the Fighting Irish beat No. 14 Michigan 24-17 on Saturday night as the rivalry returned after a three-year hiatus. A Green-out crowd welcomed the Wolverines back to Notre Dame Stadium and the Fighting Irish scored fast on their Â“rst two drives against a defense loaded with future NFL draft picks. Chris Finke hauled in a deep throw from Wimbush that went through a defenderÂs hands in trafÂ“c for a 43-yard score to put Notre Dame up 14-0 midway through the Â“rst half. Jafar ArmstrongÂs second touchdown, a 4-yard run with 3:55 left in the second quarter made it 21-3. Ambry Thomas gave the Wolverines a much-needed jolted with a 99-yard touchdown on the ensuing kickoff, but otherwise the Michigan debut of quarterback Shea Patterson was mostly disappointing. MichiganÂs only offensive touchdown came with 2:18 left in the fourth quarter, when Karan Higdon rushed in from 3 yards to cut the lead to seven. Patterson, the touted transfer from Mississippi, went 20 for 30 for 227 yards and faced steady pressure. Michigan got a Â“nal opportunity with 1:48 and got as far as its 45. Patterson was Â”ushed out of the pocket, grabbed by Jerry Tillery and stripped by Khalid Kareem. Coney recovered the loose ball with 46 seconds and sealed Notre DameÂs second straight win against the Wolverines. When they last met in 2014, Notre Dame snapped MichiganÂs streak of 365 consecutive games without being shut out with a 31-0 win. That loss also marked the beginning of the end of Brady HokeÂs tenure as Michigan coach. Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh does not come into this season fretting his job, but make no mistake his program could use a change in trajectory. The Wolverines are now 9-9 in their last 18 games and Michigan has dropped 17 straight road games against a ranked team, dating to 2006. Harbaugh also fell to 1-6 against the schoolÂs biggest rivals, Ohio State, Michigan State and Notre Dame.The TakeawayMichigan: The addition of Patterson was supposed to make a vanilla Michigan offense more dynamic, but until the line play improves there is only so much that can be expected from the former Â“ve-star recruit. PattersonÂs lone interception came on a play when both the running back and center whiffed on a blitzing Coney. Notre Dame: Have to give some credit to the Irish defense, a unit that returned most of its best players from last season and but has a new coordinator in Clark Lea, who was promoted when Mike Elko left after one season for Texas A&M.Up NextMichigan: The Wolverines return home to face Western Michigan. They have a chance to string together a few victories over the next month, but it will be the middle of October before Michigan gets another chance to show it can win big games. Notre Dame: The Irish are home for Ball State in what looks like the softest spot on their schedule. By CLIFF BRUNTAP SPORTS WRITERNORMAN, Okla. (AP) Â„ Kyler Murray wasnÂt worried about replacing Heisman Trophy winner Baker MayÂ“eld as OklahomaÂs quarterback. The junior passed for 209 yards and two touchdowns to lead the seventh-ranked Sooners past Florida Atlantic 63-14 on Saturday. Murray, a Â“rst-round Major League Baseball draft pick who chose to return to school, connected on 9 of 11 passes in just under one half of action. He also ran for 23 yards on four carries in just his second college start since transferring from Texas A&M after the 2015 season. ÂI woke up, I was pretty calm, pretty composed,ÂŽ Murray said. ÂIÂm a veteran as far as football goes. IÂve played a lot of football, so the nerves didnÂt really hit me since IÂve been there and done it before. When youÂre prepared for something, itÂs hard to be nervous.ÂŽ Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley liked what he saw from Murray. ÂI thought he was efÂ“cient and commanded our group,ÂŽ Riley said. ÂI thought he did a nice job.ÂŽ Marquise Brown caught six passes for 133 yards and a touchdown, and Rodney Anderson rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on just Â“ve carries. Lee Morris caught a 65-yard touchdown pass and blocked a punt for the Sooners. Oklahoma led 42-0 at halftime Â„ the most points the Sooners have scored in a Â“rst half since 2008. By the gameÂs end, Oklahoma outgained Florida Atlantic 650 yards to 324. ÂIÂd be shocked if thereÂs a better team in the country than what I saw today,ÂŽ Florida Atlantic coach Lane KifÂ“n said. ÂDefense much improved, and obviously, that was their area of weakness last year.ÂŽ Former Oklahoma quarterback Chris Robison passed for 157 yards for Florida Atlantic. Oklahoma dismissed him last year for violating team rules. Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary, a third-team All-American last season, was held to 69 yards on 18 carries. By JEFFREY COLLINSASSOCIATED PRESSCLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Â„ One game against an overwhelmed opponent isnÂt enough to push the highly touted freshman quarterback at Clemson past the veteran starter. Freshman Trevor Lawrence threw three touchdown passes and scored on all Â“ve of his drives to help No. 2 Clemson beat Football Championship Subdivision Furman 48-7 on Saturday. But senior starter Kelly Bryant had a touchdown pass of his own. Lawrence completed 10 passes and Bryant completed nine. ÂBoth missed some throws. Both made some great throws,ÂŽ Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said after rattling off their stats and emphasizing how similar they were. It was the romp everyone expected as Clemson overmatched the Paladins. Clemson is 33-0 against FCS teams, only once winning by less than 10 points. Swinney said he let his quarterback rotation go as planned. Bryant played the Â“rst quarter, Lawrence played the second quarter and they each got two drives to start the second half. Lawrence was 9 for 15 for 137 yards. His best pass was a 40yard strike where only Cornell Powell could get to it when Furman jumped offside and the freshman recognized he had a free play. Several of LawrenceÂs incompletions were behind receivers or overthrown. ÂItÂs made me better,ÂŽ Lawrence said about having to compete for the job after four years as a star in high school, breaking several records set by Deshaun Watson, the former Tigers star who shoved aside a veteran as a freshman to start in 2014. Bryant, who started every game in ClemsonÂs playoff run last year, went 9 for 15 for 137 yards. Bryant threw several passes at the feet of his receivers. He did show some nice moves on a 35-yard touchdown run Â„ mobility Lawrence doesnÂt quite have. Bryant has thrown for 15 touchdowns and run for 15 TDs in his career. Bryant also was one of the first players to congratulate Lawrence when he scored his first college touchdown. ÂIÂve been in his shoes,ÂŽ Bryant said. ÂMy first touchdown, Deshaun congratulated me.ÂŽ With all the talk about depth with a Clemson team that brought back 15 of 22 starters, plenty of newcomers took advantage of their opportunities. Freshman receiver Justyn Ross and freshman tight end Braden Galloway caught the Tigers final two touchdowns. Freshman Lyn-J Dixon led the team with 89 yards on six carries, his Clemson debut was a 16-yard run and he followed it with a 61-yard run the next play. ÂHonestly, with that many young wideouts, I wasnÂt watching the quarterbacks,ÂŽ co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott said.

(AP) Â„ Blake Barnett threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth score in his South Florida debut and the Bulls beat Elon 34-14 in Saturday nightÂs season opener. The 6-foot-5, 217-pounder, the opening-game starter for Alabama two years ago who left the Crimson Tide in September 2016 and continued his career as a backup at Arizona State last season, completed 24 of 34 passes for 305 yards. Barnett is replacing USFÂs career total offense leader Quinton Flowers, who threw for 2,911 yards and 25 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,078 yards and 11 TDs last season. Backup Elon quarterback Jalen Greene entered in the third quarter and picked up 87 rushing yards in nine attempts. Malcolm Summers had 62 yards on 15 carries, while starting QB Davis Cheek went 5 for 11 for 45 yards passing. USF scored on its Â“rst possession on Â“ve-play drive that was completed when Barnett connected with Randall St. Felix on a 40yard TD pass to cap USFÂs Â“rst possession, then hit St. Felix on a 52-yard completion that set up a 33-yard Â“eld goal by Jake Vivonetto for a 10-0 lead. St. Felix gained 143 yards on seven receptions. After Elon turned the ball over on its next possession, Barnett hit Tyre McCants for a 16-yard touchdown then connected with Mitchell Wilcox on a 14-yarder for a 17-0 halftime lead. Barnett added a 2-yard rushing score midway through the third quarter. Greene scored from 12 yards out late in the third before Brelynd CyphersÂ 2-yard scoring run with 13 minutes left cut the Elon deÂ“cit to 31-14.Murray leads Oklahoma past FAUNo. 2 Clemson pounds Furman 48-7By MITCH STACYAP SPORTS WRITERCOLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Â„ Ohio State came into the opener with a standin coach and a new starting quarterback after a truly bizarre preseason that led to a three-game suspension for coach Urban Meyer. The day worked out OK for the offensively proliÂ“c No. 5 Buckeyes, though their defense might still be more of a work in progress than expected. New starter Dwayne Haskins Jr. threw for a record Â“ve touchdowns as Ohio State scored on Â“ve of its Â“rst six possessions and cruised to a 77-31 rout of overmatched Oregon State on Saturday. The Buckeyes shook off MeyerÂs Â“rst absence from the sideline in six years, piling up 721 yards and tying the record for points scored in an opener. Meyer will be allowed to return to practice on Monday, although his suspension by the university will last for two more games. He was sanctioned after an investigation showed he mismanaged former assistant Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence and other bad behavior. The scandal has dogged the program for the past month. Acting coach Ryan Day wasnÂt surprised the Buckeyes started strong, jumping ahead 21-7 in the Â“rst quarter and going ahead 42-14 at halftime. ÂThere was a quiet conÂ“dence about this team all along,ÂŽ said Day, the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Haskins, who took the keys from four-year starter J.T. Barrett, was 22 for 30 for 313 yards. The Â“ve touchdowns and yards gained are records for a Â“rst-time Ohio State starter. Day coached from the sideline, with co-offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson in the press box. ÂI didnÂt notice anything different,ÂŽ Haskins said. ÂJust having coach Wilson on the Â“eld vs. coach Day, they both did a great job giving advice, communicating with me after the drives. There wasnÂt any stress with that.ÂŽBright spots for beaversOregon State was able to exploit the Ohio State defense, just not enough. Quarterback Conor Blount, forced into duty when starter Jake Luton went out with a possible concussion on the gameÂs sixth play, found plenty of cracks, throwing for 169 yards and two touchdowns. But he also was sacked Â“ve times in the Â“rst half, twice by All-American defensive end Nick Bosa. Running back Artavis Pierce slashed the Ohio State secondary for touchdowns of 80 and 78 yards on two of the BeaversÂ Â“rst three plays from scrimmage in the second half. Oregon State piled up 392 offensive yards. ÂObviously, falling short isnÂt fun, but when you go out and put 31 points on a defense like that, I think it says thereÂs a bright future here,ÂŽ Blount said.Meyer-less Buckeyes routs Oregon St in openerBarnettÂs strong debut helps USF beat Elon 34-14No. 12 Notre Dame beats No. 14 Michigan 24-17 AP PHOTONotre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush throws against the Michigan in the Â“rst half of an NCAA football game on Saturday.

(AP) Â„ Amani Oruwariye intercepted a Zac Thomas pass in the end zone and No. 10 Penn State held on to beat Appalachian State 45-38 in overtime on Saturday, exactly 11 years after the Mountaineers stunned Michigan in one of the biggest upsets in college football history. Miles Sanders rushed 19 times for 91 yards with two touchdowns including the go-ahead score in overtime for the Nittany Lions (1-0). But Penn State let a 31-17 lead evaporate when Appalachian State scored on three straight possessions over 5:53 in the fourth quarter and things were tense in Happy Valley. Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley, who completed 21 of 36 passes for 230 yards and ran for two scores, led a game-tying drive that ended with a 15-yard touchdown pass to KJ Hamler with 42 seconds left. Thomas, who returned from injury to lead his teamÂs comeback, completed 25 of 38 passes for 270 yards, threw for two touchdowns and ran for another for Appalachian State (0-1). Jalin Moore ran 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown and Malik Williams caught two touchdowns for the Mountaineers. In 2007, it was No. 5. Michigan Â“ghting for its life at home against a Division I-AA team and when Corey Lynch blocked MichiganÂs Â“eld-goal attempt it sealed a 34-32 win. No Division I-AA team had ever beaten a team ranked in The Associated Press Top 25 poll between 1989 and 2006, and itÂs unlikely it had ever happened before. Afterward, the AP changed the way it conducted its poll, allowing schools from all divisions to be eligible to receive votes. Fast forward to 2018 and it was another storied Big Ten team on its heels against the Mountaineers, a Sun Belt Conference powerhouse that went 8-4 a year ago. Mountaineers kicker Chandler Stanton added a Â“eld goal but missed a 56-yarder wide right with 20 seconds left. Jake Pinegar kicked a 32-yard Â“eld goal for Penn State to tie the game 10-10 just before halftime. By DAVID GINSBURGAP SPORTS WRITERLANDOVER, Md. (AP) Â„ It was one of those rare occurrences when the sequel proved even more impressive than the original. Maryland emerged from a trying offseason with an emotionally charged 34-29 upset of No. 23 Texas on Saturday, shaking off a lengthy weather delay to provide Matt Canada a satisfying victory in his debut at the TerrapinsÂ interim coach. After blowing a 24-7 lead, Maryland forced three turnovers in the Â“nal 6:09 and scored the gameÂs Â“nal 10 points to stun the Longhorns in the opener for the second year in a row. As remarkable as last seasonÂs 51-41 win at Texas was, this victory was far more notable because of what they endured this summer. Maryland has dedicated its season to offensive lineman Jordan McNair, who collapsed on the practice Â“eld on May 29 and died two weeks later of heatstroke. The Terrapins paid tribute to McNair by lining up with 10 players on their Â“rst offensive play. Maryland waited for a delay of game to be called, and Texas declined the penalty in a show of sportsmanship. Maryland players wore a sticker No. 79 on their helmets and emerged from the tunnel with one of his former teammates carrying a red Â”ag, also emblazoned with McNairÂs number. In addition, there was a moment of silence before the game. The circumstances surrounding the medical treatment administered to McNair on the scene, as well as charges of bullying by the coaching staff, led to the university placing head coach DJ Durkin on administrative leave and the resignation of strength coach Rick Court. Canada, the offensive coordinator, was named the interim coach. To his credit, he put in a strong offensive game plan and had his team ready to play. ÂI just canÂt say enough about our players, everything theyÂve been through and the way they stuck together,ÂŽ Canada said. ÂIt was a great way to honor Jordan. This was a win for Jordan. WeÂre certainly proud of our team, proud of our program.ÂŽ Freshman Jeshaun Jones ran for a score, threw for one and caught a 65-yard TD pass. Quarterback Kasim Hill went 17 for 29 for 222 yards. ÂEverything that has happened this summer has brought us closer together,ÂŽ Hill said. ÂIt was just fun to be back out there.ÂŽ Now in their second year under coach Tom Herman, the Longhorns Â“gured this opener would be different. It was not. ÂA lot of people are going to say it feels a lot like last year,ÂŽ Herman said. ÂIt doesnÂt to me.ÂŽ Texas took its Â“rst lead in the third quarter after Canada opted to keep his offense on the Â“eld for a fourth-and-1 from the Maryland 36. Hill was stuffed for no gain, Kyle Porter scored from the 2 to make it 29-24. After Hill directed a 79-yard drive that put the Terps back in front with 14:25 remaining, a potential thunderstorm caused a delay of 86 minutes. Texas came out Â”at after the stoppage. ÂThis is not much of a setback,ÂŽ left guard Patrick Vahe insisted. ÂWe just have to learn from all of the mistakes we had in this game.ÂŽ The game began with teams putting up 21 points in just over seven minutes. Jones opened with a 28-yard touchdown run, Longhorns junior Devin Duvernay caught a 39-yard pass in the end zone and Jones followed with a TD catch. In the second quarter, the Terrapins cashed in on a 15-yard punt, getting a halfback-option throw from Jones to Taivon Jacobs for a 24-7 lead. The Longhorns nearly pulled even by halftime. A touchdown run by Keaontay Ingram, a safety and an excellent catch in the end zone by Collin Johnson made it 24-22 at the break. CFB: West Virginia 40, Tennessee 14 CFB: #10 Penn.

By STEVE REEDAP SPORTS WRITERCHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Â„ Will Grier got his Heisman Trophy campaign off to an impressive start, throwing for 429 yards and Â“ve touchdowns as No. 17 West Virginia defeated Tennessee 40-14 Saturday in a game delayed for more than an hour at halftime due to lightning. Leading 13-7 at halftime, the Associated Press preseason All-American turned up the heat in the third quarter, connecting on touchdown passes of 33 yards to David Sills, 28 yards to Gary Jennings, and 14 yards to Kennedy McCoy as the Mountaineers opened a 33-14 lead. Grier, who grew up in the Charlotte area and once threw for 10 TD passes in a high school playoff game, was 14 of 19 for 275 yards and four TDs in the second half. Sills had seven grabs for 140 yards and two touchdowns after 18 TD receptions last season. Tim Jordan ran for 118 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown for Tennessee, which lost in Jeremy PruittÂs head coaching debut. Pruitt won six national championships as a defensive coach, including last year at Alabama, but his Vols had no answer for Grier and the high-powered Mountaineers offense.The TakeawayTennessee: Jarrett Guarantano got the starting nod at quarterback over Keller Chryst and struggled at times. The Vols had only one passing play of longer than 20 yards and Guarantano was limited to 172 yards passing. West Virginia: While Grier lived up to his preseason hype, what might have been most impressive for the Mountaineers was the play of their defense in holding the Vols to just two touchdowns. They set the tone for the game by forcing Tennessee to go three-and-out on the gameÂs Â“rst possession after two tackles for a loss of 15 yards.Grier leads West Virginia past Tennessee 40-14 AP PHOTOWest VirginiaÂs Will Grier looks to pass against Tennessee in the Â“rst half of SaturdayÂs game.Maryland stuns No. 23 Texas 34-29 for interim coach Canada AP PHOTOMaryland wide receiver Taivon Jacobs, left, catches a touchdown pass in front of Texas defensive back Kobe Boyce in the Â“rst ha lf of an NCAA college football game on Saturday.

(AP) Â„ Too embarrassed to be seen shopping for golf equipment, Tyrrell Hatton of England sent his caddie to the store to buy him a putter. For now, it looks like a steal. Hatton one-putted six consecutive greens, Â“ve of them for birdies, on his way to an 8-under 63 to share the early lead with Justin Rose in a Dell Technologies Championship with an English look on Labor Day weekend. Along with Hatton and Rose (67) tied for the lead at 10-under 132, Tommy Fleetwood of England had a 65 and was two shots behind. Tiger Woods was among those playing Saturday afternoon. Hatton, already assured a spot on his Â“rst Ryder Cup team, was down on his putting last week in New Jersey when he decided to try a new putter. The equipment trucks typically leave on Wednesday, so his only option was to buy one. He sent his caddie to a Golf Galaxy store in Paramus, New Jersey, using a video app to make the selection. ÂI was too embarrassed to go into the store to buy a putter. Obviously, he made a good choice,ÂŽ Hatton said. It cost $149 before taxes, according to the receipt that Hatton tweeted after he shot 65 in the Â“nal round last week at Ridgewood. It worked even better Saturday morning at the TPC Boston. That stretch of six oneputts included the par-5 second hole, where Hatton put his second shot into the water and saved par with a 6-foot putt. Rose opened with a 65 on Friday, and it didnÂt take long to notice the scores much lower in the second round. Hatton was 8 under through 14 holes and had to settle for pars the rest of the way. Rose Â“nished his back nine with a pair of birdies, made two more in the early part of the front nine and managed to keep pace.By DAN GELSTONAP SPORTS WRITERNEW YORK (AP) Â„ Dickie V found a totally awesome PTPÂer in the U.S OpenÂs womenÂs bracket. His pick is on point Â„ Madison Keys knows how to make a Final Four. ÂMadisonÂs backhand is lethal !ÂŽ Vitale tweeted Saturday from the Open ÂHer physical skills r #awesomebaby.ÂŽ Keys was one of the fortunate favorites in the Open, as she survived-and-advanced to the Sweet 16. But much like Vitale would say in a March stuffed with busted brackets, the womenÂs side is loaded with upset specials. Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber was the latest single-digit seed eliminated, leaving none of this yearÂs Grand Slam winners left in the U.S. Open. No. 29 seed Dominika Cibulkova rallied Saturday to beat the fourth-seeded Kerber 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, leaving only one of the top-four seeds on the womenÂs side in the tournament after three rounds. ÂI was not able actually to play my best tennis in the important moment,ÂŽ Kerber said. Join the club. Top-ranked Simona Halep, the French Open champion, was eliminated in the Â“rst round. Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki, the No. 2 seed, fell in the second. Only No. 3 seed and defending champion Sloane Stephens remains among the top-four seeds. Just a quick scan of the bracket Â“nds more early exits. On Saturday, sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia and No. 13 seed Kiki Bertens were eliminated in three sets. The early stunners seem to clear the Â“eld for No. 17 seed, oh, and sixtime champion, Serena Williams to steamroll toward another title.

Jefferson scored twice in the second quarter, both on short passes in the red zone where he could use his 6-foot-2, 197-pound frame. Expect more big plays from both once the schedule heats up. After catching only 26 passes last season, tight ends had four receptions in the first half Saturday and couldnÂt reel in two other catchable balls in FranksÂ first three throws. R.J. Raymond had one of those misses but atoned for it on the next play with a key block that helped spring GrimesÂ score. Seven players were suspended, including defensive lineman Cece Jefferson (academics) and receiver Kadarius Toney (who was involved in several off-field incidents, including being stopped by police with a loaded AR-15 in his backseat). Running back Adarius Lemons (a Clearwater native) was out, too, and three other starters were benched for the first series. Then again, McElwain preached discipline, too. He infamously erupted at running back Kelvin Taylor in Week 2 of his first season and talked a lot about how freedom of choice didnÂt mean freedom from consequence. WeÂll see whether MullenÂs message resonates. After blocking only three kicks or punts under McElwain, the Gators blocked two Saturday night Â„ the first time theyÂve done so since the Sugar Bowl in January 2013. Hillsborough High alumnus Zachary Carter swatted a field goal to end the first half, and Jeremiah Moon blocked an extra point in the fourth quarter (which Austin Perry returned for two points). UF also narrowly missed blocking a punt in the first half. ItÂs too early to know whether those moments were because of UFÂs improvement or an overwhelmed opponent, but MullenÂs emphasis on the third phase of the game is undeniable.GATORSFROM PAGE 1

COURTESY PHOTOBernie Little Distributors new Thin Blue Line delivery truck. By ANNE DÂINNOCENZIOTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Â„ The store isnÂt dead for Home Depot, KohlÂs, Best Buy or Target. Many traditional chains have posted strong sales, both online and at stores, as people are in a mood to spend. WhatÂs driving it? A booming economy and companiesÂ own efforts to try to Amazon-proof their businesses. That means making their stores more pleasant, updating their websites and speeding up delivery. The bounce is a welcome reprieve from talk of a retail apocalypse that Â”ourished after a spate of bankruptcies. Plenty of stores are still struggling, particularly mall clothing chains like VictoriaÂs Secret and department stores like Sears. So is it the start of a sustainable revival? ÂItÂs a retail renaissance for a core group of retailers,ÂŽ said Ken Perkins, president of research Â“rm Retail Metrics. ÂTheyÂre set to glide on this path for a couple of years,ÂŽ he added. ÂBut specialty apparel stores are going to struggle.ÂŽ Here are some of the main trends right now. A STRONG ECONOMY: Shoppers are spending more freely in an economy that has recently grown at the fastest pace in nearly four years. Unemployment is near an 18-year low. Average hourly wages rose 2.7 percent in July from a year earlier. ÂThereÂs no doubt that, like others, weÂre currently beneÂ“ting from a very strong consumer environment, perhaps the strongest IÂve seen in my career,ÂŽ Target CEO Brian Cornell told investors. Target saw sales at established stores post the strongest growth in 13 years. Customer numbers in stores and online had their best showing since at least 2008. Walmart similarly posted the largest increase for same-store sales in more than a decade. Best Buy had its biggest second-quarter same-store sales boost in 15 years. These three retailers, along with Home Depot, LoweÂs, KohlÂs and others raised their outlooks.

BUSINESS BRIEFSBy The Associated PressWhy CanadaÂs exclusion from US-Mexico deal raises obstacleWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald TrumpÂs drive to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement has taken an unexpected turn Â„ one that complicates his effort to replace that deal with one more favorable to American workers: Canada, AmericaÂs longtime ally and No. 2 trading partner, was left out of a proposed deal Trump just reached with Mexico and is scrambling to keep its place in the regional free-trade bloc Â„ and fend off the threat of U.S. taxes on its vehicles.Trump says tech companies Âbetter be carefulÂWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump says Google and other tech companies are Âtreading on very, very troubled territory.ÂŽ Trump had claimed in a pair of tweets earlier Tuesday that Google search results are ÂRIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD.ÂŽ Trump says companies including Google, Twitter and Facebook Âbetter be carefulÂŽ because Âyou canÂt do that to people.ÂŽMnuchin praises FedÂs Powell as Âphenomenal leaderÂWASHINGTON Â„ Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is calling Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell a Âphenomenal leader.ÂŽ His comments reÂ”ected a marked contrast to recent criticism President Donald Trump has leveled at the central bank for raising interest rates.Rebuilding is a struggle after California wine country firesSANTA ROSA, Calif. Â„ Many homeowners in Northern California wine country have discovered their insurance policies will not cover the cost of rebuilding following the most destructive set of blazes in state history. They were underinsured before the 2017 Â“res and now have to scramble for additional money to build a new home. That has delayed construction and left some questioning whether they would have been better off moving away.Electric car makers moving into TeslaÂs turf with new modelsFRANKFURT, Germany Â„ TeslaÂs rivals are wasting no time as they move aggressively into its turf. Mercedes-Benz and Audi will both show off production-ready vehicles aimed at TeslaÂs Model X in the next few days. Meanwhile, Jaguar Land Rover offers the I-Pace electric SUV and Porsche is taking on TeslaÂs Model S with the Taycan. The new models could chip away at TeslaÂs role as the global leader in luxury electric vehicles at a time when itÂs consumed by distractions.US home prices jumped 6.3 percent from a year agoWASHINGTON Â„ U.S. home prices climbed 6.3 percent in June from a year earlier, as affordability is becoming a greater obstacle for would-be buyers. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city home price index rose at a slightly slower pace than the 6.5 percent annual gain in May from a year earlier, according to a report Tuesday. But home values are increasing at more than double the pace of average wage growth, weighing down property sales despite solid demand because of accelerating economic growth and solid hiring.Bill Gates directs US education funding to local schoolsSEATTLE Â„ Marking another phase in his education agenda, Bill Gates is now taking a more Business Highlights By LIZ WESTONNERDWALLETI recently heard from the parents of yet another high school senior who turned down a huge scholarship from a good college to attend her Âdream school,ÂŽ which of course has lousy Â“nancial aid. Now her parents are scrambling, trying to Â“gure out how to pay for it This madness must end. Asking teenagers to pay the whole cost of a four-year college degree probably isnÂt realistic or smart. Kids may be cut off from Â“nancial aid, since need-based help is largely based on the parentsÂ resources. The debt they accumulate may be crippling, and students who try to pay for school entirely on their own are more likely to drop out. But the open bar approach isnÂt wise, either. Setting limits and requiring a kid to pay at least part of the cost can actually lead to better grades while protecting parentsÂ Â“nances. The sticker price to attend many private universities now exceeds $70,000 per year, including tuition, room, board, books and fees. Most college educations cost much less, of course: The net average cost, after scholarships and grants are taken into account, was $15,367 last year, according to student lender Sallie Mae. Many families arenÂt prepared for the expense: Some 4 out of 10 parents arenÂt saving for college. Among those who are, the average amount saved is $18,135, Sallie Mae found. The high cost of college and the low rate of savings has led to a whole lot of debt: $1.5 trillion in student loans, at last count.

Target says itÂs reduced the wait time for curbside pickup to 2 minutes. Target has also found where itÂs testing sameday delivery for store shoppers the average basket size is more than $200, the highest of any service it provides. Though Walmart has dropped mobile checkout at its namesake stores, others like MacyÂs and Kroger are embracing it. Urban OutÂ“tters says more shoppers than it expected are using self-checkout at its store in ManhattanÂs Herald Square. ÂItÂs all about instant gratiÂ“cation,ÂŽ says Faith Hope Consolo, chairman of Douglas EllimanÂs retail group.Revamping websites Stores are trying to make it easier to browse and discover products online as a way to compete with shoppers accustomed to Amazon. Walmart overhauled its website with a special emphasis on fashion and home goods, and has special sections dedicated to Lord & Taylor as part of their partnership and for the outdoor brand Moosejaw it bought last year. Consolo cited Nordstrom and BloomingdaleÂs as others that have made their sites easier to shop. ÂRetailers are putting together an internet-friendly site thatÂs easy to navigate,ÂŽ said C. Britt Beemer, chairman of AmericaÂs Research Group.Powerful exclusive brands Shoppers are responding to the brands stores have developed to differentiate themselves Â„ and which have better proÂ“t margins. Target has been aggressive here, particularly in clothing and home goods. Cornell says these brands are attracting new customers, and the childrenÂs clothing brand Cat & Jack generated $2 billion in sales one year after its launch in 2016. MacyÂs hopes to have its private label and exclusive brands account for 40 percent of the merchandise it offers in the next few years, up from about 30 percent. And KohlÂs teamed up with media company PopSugar on a clothing collection that will hit next month. ÂThe department stores that have a clear strategy and vision are going to be the clear winners,ÂŽ said Greg Petro, founder and CEO of First Insight, which helps retailers set prices.SHOPPERFROM PAGE 1Dhas a manageable level of education debt, itÂs easy to borrow far more than a student, or a parent, can comfortably repay. Given these realities, parents should set clear boundaries about how much theyÂll pay for college.Find out what youÂll be expected to payStart with the Department of EducationÂs FAFSA4caster, an online tool that predicts your Âexpected family contributionÂŽ based largely on parental income and assets. Enter the cost of a college to see roughly how much need-based aid to expect. Once families have the Â“nancial aid Â“gure, parents can add in the amount they want to contribute (or borrow) to determine how much they can help.Put limits on your borrowingParents often want to spare their kids from student loans, but the kids are the ones beneÂ“ting from the education, and they have many more years ahead of them to pay off the debt. Having student loans typically isnÂt a huge hardship. Students can borrow up to $31,000 in federal student loans for their undergraduate degrees, including $5,500 for their Â“rst year. The typical college graduate can easily pay that back within 10 years. A rule of thumb for students: DonÂt borrow more in total than you expect to earn in your Â“rst year out of school. Parents usually have access to PLUS federal education loans, but those have higher rates and less generous repayment plans. Parents and students should be wary of using private student loans, since those typically come with variable rates and fewer consumer protections. Parents also may be able to borrow against their home equity or retirement funds. A rule of thumb for parents: DonÂt borrow more than you can pay off before you retire, while still saving enough for that retirement.Make sure your kid has skin in the gameThe more Â“nancial help parents offer, the more likely college students are to graduate, according to a 2013 study by Laura Hamilton a sociology professor at the University of California, Merced. At the same time, studentsÂ grade-point averages decreased as parental support increased. Having loans didnÂt help grades, but scholarships, work-study and grants did. Some studies have found that working less than 20 hours per week while in college is associated with better grades. So even parents who can afford to give their kids a full ride might insist they at least get a job. Most parents, though, should be sending a different message: ÂHoney, we can afford to contribute this much to college. If you want to spend more, youÂll have to come up with the difference on your own.ÂŽ Follow that with a discussion of the impact excessive debt could have on their futures. Have this conversation long before college applications are due. It will be a much more wrenching discussion later, when the student has her heart set on the dream school that would be a nightmare for the familyÂs Â“nances.COLLEGEFROM PAGE 1Dtargeted approach to help struggling U.S. schools. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is now funding groups working directly with clusters of public schools in some of the most impoverished regions of the U.S. US consumer confidence rises to 18-year highWASHINGTON Â„ AmericansÂ consumer conÂ“dence rose in August to the highest level in nearly 18 years as their assessment of current conditions improved further and their expectations about the future rebounded. The Conference Board says its consumer conÂ“dence index rose to 133.4 in August, up from a reading 127.9 in July.US indexes struggle higher, led by technology companiesNEW YORK Â„ Major U.S. stock indexes shook off a midday stumble and managed to end with tiny gains, led by technology companies and a handful of retailers. The gains were enough to mark more record highs for several of the indexes, though not the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Discount shoe store operator DSW soared after reporting a strong quarter, but energy companies and banks slipped. Bond prices fell, sending yields higher. That dented high-dividend stocks like utilities and phone companies.Canada stunned and worried about Trump trade threatsTORONTO (AP) Â„ Canadians are stunned by the repeated broadsides from what has long been their closest ally and some have even begun boycotts. It started with President TrumpÂs attacks on Canadian dairy farmers, then Washington slapped tariffs on Canadian steel, citing national security. There was that disastrous G-7 summit in Quebec. Now itÂs a new North American free trade agreement that excludes AmericaÂs northern neighbor.Pot industry wants to end ÂstonerÂ stereotypeLOS ANGELES Â„ AmericaÂs legal marijuana industry is working on its image. Pot advocates are trying to dispel the idea that people who toke up still live in their parentsÂ basements and spend their days eating Cheetos and playing video games.

Skip student loan forbearance Â„ do this insteadBy BRIANNA MCGURRANNERDWALLETForbearance is a way to stop making student loan payments temporarily. It is not a long-term affordability strategy, or a way to put off repayment indeÂ“nitely. And that means very few people should use it Â„ probably far fewer than are doing so right now. In the second quarter of this year, 2.8 million federal student loan borrowers had loans in forbearance, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Almost 70 percent of borrowers who started repaying loans in 2013 used forbearance at some point in the next three years, according to the U.S. Government Accountability OfÂ“ce; a Â“fth had loans in forbearance for 18 months or longer. Many students didnÂt truly grasp what they signed up for when they scrambled to afford an education they were told they needed to succeed. Forbearance is the quick Â“x they turn to when the bill overwhelms them. But if forbearance isnÂt a good idea, what are borrowers in trouble supposed to do? Follow these guidelines: Â„ Use income-driven repayment to make your loan payments more affordable over the long term. Â„ Choose forbearance only for short, one-off Â“nancial crises, like when you have a big auto repair or medical bill to pay. HereÂs why.What forbearance isForbearance allows you to pause payments, generally for up to 12 months at a time for federal loans. There are different types, but discretionary forbearance is the one that can creep up on you. ItÂs available to anyone with Â“nancial difÂ“culties, and thereÂs no limit to how long you can get it for. Interest will keep adding up, meaning at the end of the forbearance period, youÂll owe more than you did before. For instance, after putting $30,000 in loans on hold for 12 months at 6 percent interest, youÂd owe about $31,800. Think of forbearance as a last resort. ItÂs too easy to renew it and let your balance grow, while also spending each month without factoring in a student loan payment. ÂBecause forbearance can be applied for virtually any reason, you want to keep that for a potential emergency down the road, where you may not qualify for anything else,ÂŽ says Betsy Mayotte, president of The Institute of Student Loan Advisors, a nonproÂ“t that offers free student loan advice.What forbearance isnÂtForbearance is not the same as deferment, another way to stop making student loan payments. Deferment is a better option, since you wonÂt pay interest on subsidized student loans when theyÂre in deferment. YouÂll qualify for deferment in certain circumstances Â„ when youÂre unemployed, for instance Â„ so ask your student loan servicer if thatÂs an option before going with forbearance. Forbearance isnÂt as easy to avoid when you have private loans. Private lenders generally offer few ways to lower payments unless youÂve already fallen behind, Mayotte says. But itÂs worth asking for interest-only or interest-free payments as an alternative.Smarter ways to get reliefMost people with student loans have federal loans, which means theyÂre eligible for income-driven repayment. These plans lower payments to a percentage of income; you can pay $0 if you have no earnings. To qualify, some plans require you to show you canÂt afford the standard 10-year schedule, but one plan Â„ called Revised Pay As You Earn Â„ is available to all federal borrowers. Sign up for free at www. studentloans.gov. Depending on the plan and the type of loans you have, the government may pay part of the interest that accrues if your payments donÂt cover it. Your loans will also be forgiven if thereÂs any balance after 20 or 25 years of payments. Income-driven repayment will help get you through a crisis, but staying on it for decades will mean owing more in interest. Under current rules youÂll also be taxed on the balance forgiven. Use income-driven repayment strategically by staying on it once youÂve found steadier Â“nancial footing. You can pay extra each month without penalty to get rid of your loans faster, and a lower payment is there as a safety net if you need it. This is your chance to take back control of your loans, and to keep them from dictating the life you can afford.

Â„ Campbell Soup Co. plans to focus on its core snacks and soup business in North America and sell its international business and pay down debt. The moves announced Thursday follow a review it began in May, when Campbell also announced the retirement of thenCEO Denise Morrison, as it faces changing food trends and potentially costly tariffs on aluminum and steel. Interim CEO Keith McLoughlin also said the board is still open to evaluating other strategic options for the company. The planned sales will leave Campbell Soup with brands like Pepperidge Farm and SnyderÂs of Hanover, which it acquired earlier this year to help move into a faster-growing business. Campbell has been wrestling with declining soup and juice sales in a market crowded with competitors at the same time that many families are seeking foods they consider healthier and less processed. It had been trying to modernize by acquiring brands it said were more in line with changing tastes, such as Bolthouse Farms. But it has now put up that brand for sale as well as manufacturing operations in Indonesia and Malaysia and its business in Hong Kong and Japan. The company also has faced headwinds due to recent changes in U.S. trade policy that increased costs. Earlier this year, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross famously held up a can of CampbellÂs soup in a CNBC interview to make the case that the Trump administrationÂs steel and aluminum tariffs were Âno big deal.ÂŽ Campbell has said it expects steel and aluminum costs to rise, pushing its overall costs higher. The companyÂs planned divestments are the latest shift in the reconÂ“guration of the U.S. food industry. As major food makers struggle to increase sales, theyÂve come under pressure from investors to boost proÂ“ts through cost cuts, mergers and acquisitions. Camden, New Jerseybased Campbell said itÂs working urgently to complete all the moves by next July. Assuming they are completed on schedule, the company expects Â“scal 2019 earnings per share of $2.40 to $2.50 on an adjusted basis, down from $2.87 per share this year. Fourth-quarter proÂ“t plunged 70 percent to $94 million, or 31 cents per share, as surging costs outpaced a revenue boost. Still, the results topped Wall Street expectations. Sales rose 33 percent to $2.22 billion, but fell short of forecasts. Shares of the company slipped 1.4 percent to $39.42 in Thursday trading. The stock is down nearly 17 percent in the year to date.

ÂIf Your Not Happy...WeÂre Not Finished.ÂŽ561-248-4979 Ways to get a sale price when there isnÂt a saleBy COURTNEY JESPERSENNERDWALLETIf you donÂt see a sale sign, it doesnÂt mean you canÂt get a deal. Here are four ways you could save money the next time you shop online or in person. 1. SIGN UP If youÂre willing to supply a retailer with some of your personal information Â„ such as your name, address or birth date Â„ you could get deals in return. ÂConsumers can visit the retailersÂ website to sign up for coupons, or even download an app to receive alerts on discounts,ÂŽ Maura L. Scott, an associate professor of marketing at Florida State University, said in an email. ÂOnline deals can be a great way to save money, provided consumers understand that they are providing something of value when they share their data with a company,ÂŽ Scott said. Companies can use this information to track consumersÂ shopping behaviors, for example. Many retailers offer a one-time discount just for joining a mailing list or rewards program, or for agreeing to receive text alerts. (Though note that you might have to wait a bit to receive your coupon before you can get a discount.) Two recent examples we spotted: coupons for 12 percent or 15 percent off at online seller Overstock.com for signing up an email address, and 15 percent off one online order at makeup company Estee Lauder for joining its loyalty program. 2. NEGOTIATE Contrary to what you may think, the price you see on the sticker isnÂt always the price you have to pay, according to Emily Hunter, an associate professor of management at Baylor University. ÂI Â“nd that people in general donÂt consider negotiating an option when theyÂre at a store,ÂŽ Hunter says. ÂThey think about it as an option at a garage sale, but not like a big-box retailer.ÂŽ One possible tactic: Shoppers can use a defect as leverage for a discount. (Think fruit that is bruised or a shirt that has a small tear or stain.) Additionally, if thereÂs any question of how much an item costs Â„ such as if itÂs not clearly marked on the shelf Â„ try requesting the lower of the potential prices. Even if thereÂs nothing wrong with a product, you can still ask for a lower price, Hunter says. Particularly on big-ticket items, retailers may want to work with you to win your business. To get the best outcome, be sure to clearly state what you want Â„ such as 30 percent off Â„ instead of starting with ÂwhatÂs the best price you can give me?ÂŽ 3. JUST ASK If you saw a coupon for an item but forgot to bring it with you to the store, all is not lost: You can try asking for one at the register. ÂThey literally have them right next to the terminal,ÂŽ Hunter says. ÂItÂs just a matter of whether theyÂre willing to let you use it. This is where being really kind and polite really helps.ÂŽ
D6 | HIGHLANDS NEWS-SUN | September 2, 2018 www.highlandsnewssun.com Buffett says stocks remain attractive even at current highsBy JOSH FUNKThe Associated PressOMAHA, Neb. Â„ Billionaire Warren Buffett says U.S. stocks remain attractive investments even at todayÂs high prices when compared to bonds or real estate. Buffett reiterated his view that stocks are the best long-term investment during an interview on CNBC Thursday. ÂIf you had your choice between buying and holding a 30-year bond for 30 years or holding a basket of American stocks, thereÂs just no question youÂre going to do better owning stocks,ÂŽ he said. Buffett took some of his own advice and bought a few more Apple shares for his Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate. The Omaha, Nebraska-based company already held 252 million Apple shares at the end of June. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq stock indexes set record highs this week, although they pulled back some Thursday. Berkshire has also accumulated more than $100 billion while Buffett looks for another acquisition or major investment. Buffett said the U.S. economy overall continues to improve gradually just as it has done ever since the fall of 2009, although a number of BerkshireÂs businesses are seeing their costs increase a bit because of inÂ”ation. ÂAcross the board, business is good,ÂŽ Buffett said. ÂIt was good two years ago. It keeps getting better.ÂŽ Buffett also noted Berkshire had also repurchased some of its own stock in the past month since it relaxed its own rules on buybacks. Buffett was in New York Thursday on his 88th birthday to dine with the person who paid $3.3 million in a charity auction for a private lunch with the investor. The lunch auction raises money for the Glide Foundation that helps the homeless in San Francisco. Berkshire owns more than 90 companies, including BNSF railroad, clothing, furniture and jewelry Â“rms. Its insurance and utility businesses typically account for more than half of the companyÂs net income. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSBerkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren says stocks remain attractive investments even at todayÂs high prices when compared to bonds or real estate. Buett reiterated his view that stocks are the best long-term investment during an interview on CNBC recently.
